Audiology

Children’s audiology provides services to children from eight months to 18 years.

The Audiologist can provide comprehensive hearing assessments and advice regarding management of any hearing loss.

If a hearing loss is detected, it’s important to identify and manage as soon as possible. This leads to better outcomes for a child’s speech and language development, communication, behaviour, learning and overall development.

For older children, possible signs of a hearing problem include:

  • Inattentiveness or poor concentration
  • A change in their progress at school
  • A history of ear infections
  • Difficulty pinpointing where a sound is coming from
  • Not responding when their name is called
  • Talking loudly and listening to the television at a high volume
  • Mispronouncing words
