Our Audiology team diagnoses and treats hearing loss in children from birth through young adulthood. The first 2 years of life are the most critical for learning speech and language. Helping children with hearing loss early in life can help them communicate for the rest of their lives.

Why choose Seattle Children’s Audiology Program?

We are experts in assessing hearing in babies, children, teens and young adults. We work as a team with other experts and your family. Our goal is to help your child realize their full potential to hear and communicate.

    • Hearing loss can happen for many reasons. We work closely with other teams to identify and treat hearing loss. We treat children with a wide range of hearing abilities.
    • We use a range of tests to assess your child’s hearing and make sure they get the right services.
    • Our services include hearing devices, cochlear implants and some types of hearing assistance technologies. Read about options for children with hearing loss.
