Children with hearing loss can either be born with hearing loss or develop it later in childhood. Approximately 50% of children born with hearing loss have a genetic origin; many of these causes can be identified on genetic testing. Early diagnosis and treatment are key to allow normal language and hearing development to occur. Many children with hearing loss can be treated with hearing aids, but more severe cases may need cochlear implantation. We are equipped to provide the most up to date diagnostic testing and treatment for all causes of hearing loss. Please contact our office today if you are concerned about your child’s hearing.
