Hearing malfunctions in children is an important aspect which should be addressed on top priority basis. Because it is what a child hears during the first 3 years of age, which gets translated as speech and language at a later stage. A child who is unable to hear will find it extremely difficult to articulate verbally. Hence pediatric hearing care is of utmost importance and should not be neglected. Common complaints in children like ear pain, discharge from the ear should be immediately attended to by an ENT specialist or an Audiologist, as children are prone to middle ear infections.

However a congenital (since birth) hearing loss often goes unnoticed by parents/caretakers. If the problem is diagnosed at an early stage, the better will be the prognosis. It is highly recommended to go for an expert opinion if a child is unable to speak, well after one year of age or if the child refuses to respond to name calls or any other kind of loud noise.

Our clinic conducts specialized hearing tests for children namely OAE & BERA, in order to diagnose the problem if any. Based on the test results and the relevant findings of an ENT, children who are diagnosed with sensory neural hearing loss are advised to go in for our pediatric hearing aids which are designed incorporating the latest technology, so as to enable such children to lead a normal life.
