Children born with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) have trouble understanding speech and being able to tell one sound from another. If your child is diagnosed with ANSD, Nemours Children's audiologists and other specialists can work together to help your child develop strong language and communication skills as they grow.
Although there’s no known cure for auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder, assistive listening devices (like hearing aids and cochlear implants) can help kids with ANSD make sense of sounds and develop language skills. Our team approach helps us figure out which devices and therapies are right for your child.
Nemours has a number of service regions. Selecting your region will help us show you the right contact information and the most relevant content for you.
