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?".

Early Detection is Critical

Undetected hearing loss in infants and young children compromises language development, brain development, and personal achievement throughout their lifespan. Normal hearing is the precursor to speech and language development. Without appropriate opportunities to learn language and engage, children can and will fall behind their peers in language, cognition, academic achievement, and social and emotional development.

Once identified, hearing loss must be treated with prompt intervention. Early detection can be one of the first steps in identifying a compromised sensory system in infants and children. If necessary, children with a compromised sensory system will also need to be evaluated by an otolaryngologist, ophthalmologist, audiologist, and a geneticist. This multidisciplinary approach can provide your family with an explanation for the hearing loss, a prognosis for its potential progression, and information about any associated disorders (renal, vision, cardiac, etc.). 

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.
