Because the onset and subsequent treatment of pediatric hearing loss can be a highly emotional journey for all involved, Professional Audiological Services empowers parents throughout the entire process with a mixture of professional knowledge and compassionate guidance. We offer the best pediatric hearing aids in the industry.
Our emphasis on pediatric hearing loss sets us apart from many audiology providers because we realize the important role hearing plays in language, social, and academic development of young children. Starting at the first signs of hearing loss, we provide children with the best possible care and hearing aids, tailored perfectly to their needs.
Our process begins diagnostics to identify the level of a child’s hearing impairment. Comfortable, spacious, and brightly-colored sound rooms provide a sense of calm and fun during the testing phase. Our experienced doctors of audiology are highly experienced working with children. After testing is complete, a diagnosis is made. The type and severity of the hearing loss is explained to parents, as well as the option of hearing aids.
Special Note from Dr. Coltharp
When we recommend a hearing aid, we the most appropriate model for the child, taking into account lifestyle, manual dexterity, and cosmetic appearance. The initial hearing aid fitting is an experience for the entire family; nothing brings us more joy than to see the face of a child hearing again, or for the very first time.
After hearing aids are selected and fitted, we set follow-up appointments to make calibrations to ensure our younger patients are getting all that they can from their child hearing aid. During these appointments, the child’s hearing improvement is assessed and the hearing aids are adjusted to maximize comfort and sound quality. Parents should know diagnostic testing is covered by most insurance and Medicaid covers the cost of hearing aids. Professional Audiological Services also accepts all Medicaid, making hearing health well within reach for most families. Call today to see if you are covered!
