CHILDREN'S HEARING HEALTH SERVICES

 

We all want our children to hear well but they can develop hearing problems at any time.

Even a minor hearing loss, if not detected early, can affect their speech & language acquisition and development, their social skills and confidence and can have a significant impact on their education.

The most common hearing problem in children is caused by Glue Ear which is easily assessed and treated. For more information on Glue Ear please see our Common Hearing Problems page.

 

 

CAUSES AND SIGNS OF HEARING LOSS IN CHILDREN

 

Parents can often notice if their child’s hearing isn’t 100% or perhaps your child’s teacher raises it as an issue.

If you feel your child is displaying any of the symptoms below discuss it with your GP and ask him to refer you to Mrs Bateson for an Audiological Assessment.

Assessment results will be discussed with you at your appointment and the full results and report will be sent back to your GP or ENT Consultant with recommendations. Reports and/or recommendations can also be sent to your child’s school if necessary to ensure their hearing problem is accommodated.

 

COMMON SYMPTOMS


1.  Your child often says “pardon” or “what”.
2.  Doesn’t always respond the first time they’re called.
3.  Appears to daydream or be inattentive.
4.  Prefers or requests that the TV or radio volume is turned up louder than you think is suitable.
5.  Talks loudly.
6.  Speaks unclearly or mispronounces some words.
7.  Unhappy or unsettled at school.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

 

“I would recommend Fiona to anyone who feels their child is having hearing problems. She very quickly found out why my 8 year old daughter wasn’t hearing so well and was starting to struggle with her work at school. Fiona took a full history, tested her and with the treatment she recommended she is now back to hearing normally again and doing brilliantly at school. Fiona is an absolute professional in her field. She’s lovely with children and very clear and supportive with parents.”
