Pediatric Hearing Aids
Children of all ages with hearing loss will require some type of hearing device to help them learn and develop with their age peers. The auditory processing center of the brain undergoes essential development during the the first two to three years of life, and children who do not have access to sound and spoken language during this time can suffer from significant developmental delays.
Even children with "mild" or unilateral (one-sided) hearing loss can encounter problems with educational and psychosocial development when left untreated. These kind of learning delays can impact a child well after they enter school, and many children simply never "catch up" to their age peers and face social isolation.
Because hearing is so important to the development of language and social skills, it is essential to work with a dedicated team of professionals to help your hearing impaired child achieve their best. We routinely work with area education agencies to ensure that each child's educational needs are being met.
Children have unique needs when it comes to hearing devices. Our expert pediatric audiologists can advise you on the most appropriate type of device for your child and techniques to help your child wear their device during all waking hours.
