Family-centered hearing care

Hearing can help us to connect to the world around us. It can help us to communicate, keep us safe and bring us joy.

UW Health Kids audiology focuses on evaluation and treatment of children’s hearing. Our team of audiologists evaluates hearing in kids from birth through age 17. For those diagnosed with hearing loss, we offer a variety of treatment plans.
