Paediatric audiology and audio-vestibular medicine

Hearing and balance services for children

The assessment and rehabilitation of children with hearing loss or balance disorders

Overview

We take a holistic, child-focused approach to paediatric audiology and audio-vestibular medicine. As the largest and most comprehensive private provider of diagnostic and rehabilitative hearing services in the UK, we're able to offer children clinical and diagnostic services that are usually only found in a small number of teaching hospitals and research facilities. These include conductive hearing loss, glue ear, sensorineural hearing loss (damage to the hair cells in the cochlea), newborn hearing investigation, balance problems and central auditory processing disorders. We can also support medical legal work for noise-induced hearing losses and head injury cases. Our team at The Portland Hospital can also provide three types of paediatric cochlear implants — a specialised hearing device to help moderate to profoundly deaf children.

Expertise

Our paediatric audiology consultants are leaders in their field and work closely with ear, nose and throat consultants, as well as Auditory-Verbal UK.

  • Cochlear implants

    Need to know

    A cochlear implant is an electronic device that can be suitable for those who are profoundly deaf. It has several different parts — some are surgically implanted under the skin and some are worn on the body. It works by stimulating the nerves in the inner ear to send sound signals to the brain.

  • Hearing loss assessment

    Need to know

    Speech audiometry helps to determine the degree and type of hearing loss a person has. It is used to assess your word recognition abilities, your level of discomfort or tolerance to speech stimuli and to determine the correct levels for any amplifying devices, such as hearing aids.
