No one is ever too old or too young to have a hearing test. Hearing loss can affect people of all ages and in many different ways. Hearing tests identify the type and extent of hearing loss and indicate the appropriate treatment.
Newborn or Infant Hearing Tests
Hearing loss may be present at birth or acquired after birth due to illness, injury or hereditary factors. It is especially important that children hear at this critical time in development.
Hearing Tests for Young Children and Teens
Children and teens may experience an unexpected hearing loss at any time. Since noise can also be a factor, protect your children from noise-induced hearing loss while streaming music from iPods, iPads, cell phones, etc. Regardless of prior hearing screening outcomes, children and teens who demonstrate hearing loss symptoms should receive ongoing audiologic monitoring.
