Pediatric Audiology

While hearing can be tested at any age, testing a child's hearing can be very different from testing an adult. We have a dedicated pediatric audiology clinic where children can receive the unique care they require. Months before a child can reliably respond to sound, we can use objective tests to estimate hearing, starting with the newborn hearing screening. As the child develops the ability to respond consistently to sound, we are able to use enjoyable activities to determine the softest sounds a child can hear. If amplification is required, we are able to work with both the child and the family to ensure that the child has every opportunity to maximize his or her hearing potential. We also provide tests of auditory processing abilities for school aged children to examine how a child is processing what is heard and can make recommendations accordingly.
