Pediatric Audiology

Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital offers a full range of audiology services in our specially designed, child-friendly Pediatric Specialty Centers. Our pediatric audiologists are trained and dedicated to improving the lives of children with hearing difficulties. 

Our caring team provides compassionate and innovative solutions to diagnostics, treatment and management for a full range of hearing disorders. With specially-equipped sound booths we are able to test children from birth through 21 years of age. A test assistant is available for children who may require help understanding the listening tasks while in the booth. 

Working with the child and family, our audiologists collaborate with other pediatric specialists such as otolaryngologists (ENT), speech-language pathologists, craniofacial, genetics, neurology, and developmental/behavioral pediatrics to develop an individualized care plan to offer the most effective treatment options.

Using leading technology, our team will ensure your child is optimally fit to maximize audibility. In addition to medical professionals, our pediatric audiologists remain in frequent contact with your child’s birth-to-three team, educational audiologists and their school system.
