Pediatric Hearing Test

Pediatric Hearing Screenings
Select Sonus locations are pleased to offer pediatric services!
Are you concerned about your child’s hearing health? If your child is experiencing problems with hearing, it could contribute to developmental delays and challenges with learning. At Sonus Hearing Care Professionals, we place an emphasis on making sure children are screened for hearing loss, and if any is detected, we create treatment plans that will benefit the child now and into the future.
The hearing specialist will test your child’s hearing through wearing headphones (if tolerated) or speakers in a sound booth.
Types of Hearing Loss in Children
There are a few types of hearing loss but the most common type of hearing loss for children is conductive hearing loss. Most of the time, this type of hearing loss can be treated medically and will be referred to a specialist.
The second most common type is sensorineural hearing loss. This is referred to as “nerve” loss with damage inside the cochlea (hearing organ) or along the neural pathway. This hearing loss can be assisted by use of hearing aids or cochlear implants.
And then mixed hearing loss is a combination of the previous two, which is less common in children. Your child may need the assistance of an ear, nose, and throat specialist for treatment of the conductive component and then would return to our practice for fitting of hearing aids for the sensorineural hearing loss.
