Mary Leung is an experienced Audiologist who joined Dineen Westcott Moore Audiology in 2004. She has a special interest in aural rehabilitation.
Mary began work as an Audiologist with Australian Hearing Services (now known as Australian Hearing) in Sydney, where she gained invaluable experience providing hearing assessments and hearing aid fittings to elderly and paediatric clients.
In 1993, Mary joined the Victorian Deaf Society HEAR (Hearing Education Aural Rehabilitation) Service where she remained for ten years. In her time there, Mary had the opportunity to develop her interest in issues affecting how hearing impaired people adapt to their hearing loss. Mary was also the manager of the HEAR Service Audiology program for three and a half years, juggling both an administrative and clinical workload.
In 2000, Mary spent a year working in the United Kingdom, at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge. During her time there, she was able to observe and work within a different, predominantly public, audiology program.
Mary's Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology was undertaken with the intention of furthering her interest in psychological issues surrounding hearing loss. Her thesis examined how hearing impaired people cope with their hearing loss.
Most recently, Mary has researched the various contemporary approaches to CAPD (Central Auditory Processing Disorder) evaluation and rehabilitation. As a result, she has been able to put together a comprehensive CAPD test battery and can offer a rehabilitation program firmly based on an individual's specific auditory processing difficulties.
