Since 1993, Women & Infants has provided hearing screenings for more than 200,000 infants, with two to three children per 1,000 identified as having some degree of permanent hearing loss each year.
These children need specialized services through a Pediatric Audiology Program. In addition, other infants and young children require routine hearing assessments that are best performed by certified, licensed audiologists who are experienced in working with young patients.
In response to this need, Women & Infants began the Pediatric Audiology Program to provide diagnostic and habilitative audiology services to infants and children. Patients are referred from pediatricians, family practitioners, ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialists, parents, and other outside referral sources.
The Pediatric Audiology Program focuses on the special needs of children and their families. Our experienced, highly-trained professionals provide quality clinical care in a setting that is friendly and supportive.
Our certified, licensed audiologists provide complete audiology testing, including:
- Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR).
- Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE).
- Visual reinforcement audiometry.
- Behavioral audiometry.
- Play audiometry.
Middle ear assessment, however, is only the first step. Once hearing loss is confirmed, parents are faced with many decisions regarding the habilitation process. Our facility is equipped to offer several amplification and habilitative options, including:
- State-of-the-art hearing aids.
- Assistive listening devices.
- Ear molds.
- Hearing protectors.
- Swim plugs.
- Educational videos.
- Parent support resources.
