Hearing Loss and Rehabilitation
Infants and Children
Children have specific needs and require specialised care. The ability to hear is the foundation of a child’s ability to learn so it is important to identify any hearing loss early. If left untreated, hearing loss may result in developmental milestones delay, particularly in speech and language. Thus, early access to sound amplification is crucial for a child’s speech, language and educational development.
Hearing can be tested in children of any age. A variety of techniques can be used to test children’s hearing depending on their age, developmental level and cooperation. We offer a range of evaluation services to cater for the needs of children of all ages.
• Newborn Hearing Screening
• Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR)
• Auditory Steady State Response (ASSR)
• Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE)
• High Frequency Tympanometry
• Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA)
• Play Audiometry
