It takes additional training and experience to address the hearing concerns of children.  Our clinic offers evaluations for children ages 4-18.

A pediatric evaluation is similar to an adult, but with greater emphasis on current language development, any developmental delays, and also a focus on maximizing educational goals.  For young children, we use play audiometry to encourage accurate results.  We also utilize calibrated word testing and educational inventories to get a full picture on how potential hearing loss is affecting the child.
