Aviva Klugmann received her Doctorate of Audiology from Montclair State University in 2018, where she received the Communication Sciences and Disorders scholarship award.
Dr. Klugmann completed her undergraduate coursework at Lander College of Arts and Sciences, earning her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech and Communication. She was awarded the Who’s Who Among Students award in 2014 and graduated on the Dean’s List of Honors. Dr. Klugmann completed her clinical residency at RWJ Barnabas Health, where she worked with newborns through geriatrics in both an outpatient and hospital setting.

She is currently a Fellow of the American Academy of Audiology and a member of the New Jersey Academy of Audiology.
Dr. Klugmann’s interests include improving testing methods for hard-to-test pediatrics and early diagnosis and treatment of adult hearing impairment. She is currently publishing research validating a novel set of stimuli for behavioral audiometry of toddlers and young children. She is also at the helm of the Presbycusis Screening Initiative, an effort to detect and diagnose adult-onset hearing loss earlier. Her goal is “No Adult Left Behind” – to use science and technology to optimize cognitive processing earlier, and then keep her patients socially engaged and involved despite progression of age and hearing loss.
Dr. Klugmann resides in Spring Valley, NY with her husband and two little girls. She enjoys being a mother and wife, interior and graphic design, and reading good books.
