At Hearing Center, we treat patients of all ages and specialize in helping children with their ENT conditions.
Conditions We Treat
Children’s Hearing Loss
Signs and symptoms such as difficulty understanding speech, complaints of earaches or loud noise, failing grades, or the desire to use one ear over another can indicate hearing loss in a child. Early screening, diagnosis, and treatment are crucial to reducing the risk of academic, social, and communication difficulties.
Noise-Induced Hearing Loss in Children
Excess noise can irreparably damage the inner ear’s tiny hair cells, which can lead to permanent hearing loss. Hearing protection; avoidance of sounds louder than 85 decibels; and careful use of MP3 players, earbuds, and headphones can help reduce the risk of noise-induced hearing loss.
