Speech Delays and Hearing Problems
Infants and toddlers have a predictable age at which they should gain speech and language. For children who are delayed in speaking, it is important to make sure there is not a related hearing loss. Often, a medical or behavioral disorder can have symptoms similar to those of a child with hearing loss.
Our team approach to evaluating speech delay and hearing concerns involves our Audiologists and ENT Physicians who have extensive pediatric experience.
Our Audiologists will discuss your concerns and employ various testing techniques that engage your child to assess their hearing ability.
Our ENT physicians will complete a comprehensive medical evaluation to look for other contributing factors such as chronic ear infections, sleep apnea, and tongue ties.
Based on the findings of our team, treatment plans and referrals may be made based on your child’s individual needs.
