Audiology aims to make sure children have the best hearing levels possible.
By doing this children will be able to communicate, learn and interact with others to the best of their ability. We work with families to provide high quality care to the children we see and families will be involved at all stages in decision making
The Children’s Audiology Service offer expertise in the following areas:
- Universal hearing screening for all new born babies and for school children
- early diagnosis and management of hearing loss for all children who need to see us
- hearing aid fitting after detailed assessment
- ongoing support for hearing aid users
- diagnosis and management of hearing related problems such as tinnitus and auditory process problems
The age range of children and young people we see is 0-18 across Halton, St Helens and Knowsley.
