Audiology is the diagnosis and treatment of hearing loss and balance problems. We are experts in identifying and evaluating hearing loss in babies and young children, as well as teens and young adults. Our Audiology program provides a full range of hearing tests, and we offer complete rehabilitation services including hearing aids and FM systems at clinics in Seattle and Bellevue.
The first two years of life are the most critical for learning speech and language, and hearing loss that is not noticed can hurt your child's ability to learn these important skills. Helping children with hearing loss early in life can help them communicate for the rest of their lives.
Family Conversations is an early intervention program unique to Seattle Children's. The program focuses on the needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing children from birth through age 3. Our specialists are trained in working with families of children who are young. They meet with your family each week in your home.
Children's advocacy program promotes health and safety for all children. We work with the Washington State Department of Health to support the Early Hearing Loss Detection, Diagnosis and Intervention (EHDDI) program.
