Children's Audiology Service

Children’s Audiology is here to test the hearing of all ages of children from birth through to school leaving age.

Children are offered an appointment because there is some concern regarding speech or hearing, or because they have had a hearing screening test in school and further testing is advisable.

We accept referrals from parents, doctors, health visitors, teachers, speech and language therapists.

Permanent childhood hearing loss is actually quite rare; around 1 to 2 babies in every 1000 are born with a hearing loss in one or both ears. Most babies have their hearing tested shortly after birth.

Temporary hearing problems are very common in childhood, and many factors can contribute including coughs, colds and ear infections. This is the type of problem most commonly found during the school hearing screening test.
