Did you know?
Children experience both temporary and permanent hearing loss. We can help with both.
Hearing loss affects boys and girls equally.
Children with untreated hearing loss will likely experience difficulty learning.
More than 90% of deaf children are born to hearing parents.
The sooner your child is tested the better their chances are of developing and learning at an age appropriate rate.
Children with permanent hearing loss are often provided treatment with hearing aids or cochlea implants as soon as possible to help keep them on track with their learning and development.
In Taranaki, hearing aids for children are fitted at Taranaki Base Hospital. If a permanent hearing loss is detected at Central Audiology, we will arrange the appropriate referral.
