Hearing Tests for Children
We know how critical being able to hear is to a child’s ability to develop their speech and language skills. If you think your child is exhibiting signs of hearing loss, or that their hearing loss is becoming more severe, you can book an appointment for them at our hearing clinic in Yarmouth at any time for a pediatric hearing test.
Signs of Hearing Loss in Children
If you aren’t sure whether your child has hearing loss, here are common signs and symptoms of hearing loss depending on their age:
- Newborns — they do not react to sudden loud noises or to your voice by “jumping”, looking startled, or turning their eyes towards you when you speak
- 1 year olds — they have not yet started trying to imitate sounds or speech, like “Mama” or “Dada”
- Toddlers — limited or no speech, difficulty paying attention when you speak, difficulty learning
- Children and teenagers — listens to the TV or music at very high volumes, becomes easily frustrated in a conversation when there is a lot of background noise
If your child shows any of these signs or symptoms of hearing loss in children, contact us today to book a hearing test. We will assess their hearing capacity and recommend the best solutions to improve their hearing.
