Pediatric Audiology

At UVA Health Children's, our pediatric audiologists evaluate hearing in children of all ages. From newborns with congenital hearing loss to young adults with newly discovered hearing loss. We also treat dizziness, balance issues, and other hearing problems. 

Our pediatric audiologists also are specially trained to evaluate hearing in children who may have other disabilities, such as Down syndrome, microtia/atresia, or cerebral palsy.

Diagnosing & Coaching for Cochlear Implants

We evaluate your child's eligibility for cochlear implants. Should your child receive an implant, we provide the follow-up care and device programming. Learn more about the role we take in making your child's cochlear implants a success.

Hearing Aids for Children

Hearing is critical for the development of speech and language skills. Children born with profound hearing loss, or those who have lost hearing at a young age, have little or no sense of sound and often have difficulty with speech and language.

Our certified audiologists are also licensed hearing aid specialists who help children find the hearing device that best fits their needs. We offer a full range of hearing aids in varying styles, sizes, and costs.
