With our considerable clinical experience we are able to offer families a range of hearing assessment techniques for children from infants to young adults allowing the assessment to be tailor-made for the child. The assessment is based on the needs of the family with a full and clear explanation of test results given at the end of the assessment. We will then discuss appropriate options with the family and together make an action plan for the child in terms of their hearing. For more information on children’s hearing tests search for the NDCS booklet on “Understanding Your Child’s Hearing Tests” at www.ndcs.org.uk
Children’s Hearing Aid Services
With our backgrounds as HPC Registered Clinical Scientists and a HPC Registered Hearing Aid Dispenser we are able to advise families on the suitability of hearing aid(s) for their child as well as providing a range of hearing aid styles and programming options available based on the needs of the child. Children who wear hearing aids will benefit from regular hearing aid reviews to ensure that they have effective amplification (i.e. the hearing aids are doing the right job). We can therefore provide regular hearing aid reviews, hearing aid aftercare and provision of hearing aid accessories to ensure that the child is always receiving effective amplification from their hearing aids.
