About me

Chanie Monoker, CCC-A

Developmental Audiologist

I service birth through 35 year olds using a tiered assessment approach to differentially diagnose communication and learning differences.
My research on assessing auditory processing using objective measures was award winning, and was presented at the 2017 ASHA convention.
I received my Master’s degree in Communication Sciences from Hunter College and am a licensed audiologist in both NY and NJ.

I specialize in assessing and treating auditory processing differences, including misophonia, hyperacousis, amblyaudia (lazy ear), etc.
More about my tiered assessment model and misophonia assessment can be found on my website,
