Developmentally appropriate diagnostic audiologic evaluations for children and infants/toddlers are customized to the child’s individual needs, with developmentally-appropriate behavioral and objective measures.
In children between 3 and 5 years of age, hearing screenings can help identify hearing loss that may affect development, interfere with future performance in school, or indicate a medical condition (e.g., middle or inner ear disorder). Northeastern provides hearing community-based hearing screenings to various Head Start and preschool based programs. Feel free to contact us at 617-373-2492 for further information.
There are many steps that are part of a hearing aid evaluation. If you suspect that you might need a hearing aid, you will first need to have a hearing evaluation. The audiologist will review the type of hearing loss as well as how it is affecting a patient’s life and recommend the “best fit” with the patient’s medical condition, lifestyle, and budget from a variety of hearing aid models.
When the hearing aid arrives, a patient will return to work with the audiologist to fine tune the incoming sounds using a special computer program.
Significant technological advances have been made to improve digital amplification. Many of the new digital aids can be easily adjusted for background and environmental noises, improving patient satisfaction.
