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.
Services and treatment
Complete, kid-friendly hearing evaluations and treatments
We use a variety of tests to assess hearing in children in order to accurately diagnose hearing conditions. We work with the child and their family to then develop an individualized treatment plan. We work to engage young children in testing by using toys and games.
Age appropriate behavioral and non-behavioral tests include:
Visual reinforcement audiometry
Conditioned play audiometry
Auditory brainstem response (ABR)
Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE)
Cochlear implant evaluations
Hearing aid evaluations
Treatments and other services
Treatment is tailored to each child’s needs. Treatment options and services that that we offer include:
Bone-anchored hearing aids
Traditional hearing aids
Custom earmolds, including swimming ear plugs and stage performer earpieces
Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic
Sometimes, hearing disorders are linked to craniofacial anomalies. These are defects in a child’s head and facial bones that are usually present at birth. Doctors in our Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic specialize in treating these conditions.
