Hearing Loss in Children

Hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop communication, language, and social skills. The earlier children with hearing loss start getting services, the more likely they are to reach their full potential.  Here are a few signs that may indicate your child needs to have their hearing checked. 


Your child turns the TV volume up too high.


Your child's speech is delayed.


Your child's speech is not clear.


Your child does not follow directions.


Your child often says, "Huh?".

Testing of Our Pediatric Patients

We know that our pediatric patients are not just short adults.

The evaluations that we do are designed with the understanding that small children cannot be expected to follow complex commands and have incredibly short attention spans.  Rest assured we know what we’re doing when it comes to our youngest patients.

Our Promise to You

You’ve been told that your child needs to have their hearing checked.  This can be a scary time.  We understand how you’re feeling and rest assured we’ll promise to answer all your questions and to make sure your visit with us is as stress free as possible.

Hearing Aids for Infants & Children

The most important period for language and speech development is generally regarded as the first 3 years of life. It is important that hearing impairment be recognized as early in life as possible so that the child can enjoy normal social development.

Hearing aids can be worn by people of any age including infants. Young babies with hearing loss can understand sounds better by using hearing aids. Hearing aids will give your child the chance to learn speech skills right from birth.
