Pediatric Hearing



i

Normal hearing is crucial for age-appropriate speech, language, and learning development. Hearing loss in children can be due to a number of factors, some of which are temporary (middle ear fluid, excessive wax in the ear canal, etc.) and some of which are permanent. Regardless of whether the hearing loss is temporary or permanent, inconsistent hearing can negatively affect speech and language development. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s speech, language, or hearing abilities, you should have your child’s hearing tested. Early identification of a permanent hearing loss and fitting with appropriate amplification are critical to developing age-appropriate speech, language, and learning skills.
