Diagnosing and Treating Hearing Loss

Nemours pediatric audiologists help kids grow up to their best ability. Hearing loss can affect how a child learns and develops. The sooner we can detect it, the better we can help them reach key milestones.

We use the latest methods to test hearing and check how the brain and ears work together — even in kids who can’t talk to us. We’re experts in evaluating the tiniest newborns and children with developmental differences. This can mean earlier treatment, and the best outcomes.

Our team looks for the cause of your child’s hearing loss and works with other specialists to address it. We may use speech-language therapy, frequency modulated systems (technology that makes voices and other sounds louder), hearing aids, implantable hearing devices, cochlear implants and surgery. You get everything you need, all in one system.

And we’re here as your child grows. We’ll help your child thrive at home, school and with friends.
