While most children have normal hearing abilities at birth, about one to three of every 1,000 American babies have some level of hearing loss. Early intervention can make all the difference in a child’s ability to communicate. Pediatric audiology focuses on diagnosing and treating hearing loss in children of all ages with the goal of identifying hearing loss as early as possible.
At DMG Children’s Rehabilitative Services (DMG CRS), we know that hearing challenges can impact your child’s development. That’s why DMG CRS includes pediatric audiologists specializing in diagnosing and assessing hearing conditions in infants, children, and adolescents. Early diagnosis is key, and our pediatric audiology specialists will partner with you to understand your communication goals for your child and develop a treatment plan to meet those goals.
Collaborating with other DMG CRS medical specialists, our highly trained pediatric audiology team will treat hearing issues resulting from a complex medical condition to help optimize your child’s hearing and development. Your child’s treatment plan may include cochlear implants or hearing aids. We will identify the right solution for your child, help select and fit the device, and educate you on the proper care of the implant or hearing aid to maximize effectiveness.
We’re here for ongoing support for hearing aids, ear mold devices and more, so your family can feel confident your child’s treatment plan will be adjusted as needed based on their growth and development.
