Early identification of childhood hearing loss is of crucial importance to the child’s language development and academic performance. On the other hand, undiagnosed and unmanaged hearing loss during childhood places a significant risk of language delay, poor academic performance, and reduced social confidence.

Outcomes may be greatly improved by early identification of hearing loss and appropriate follow-up care. If there are concerns for your child’s language development or listening behaviors, your physician may recommend audiology testing to rule out underlying hearing loss.
