hearing and speech development

In early childhood, our sense of hearing plays a crucial role since it is the basis for speech development and thus a healthy normal child development. Sometimes, when children don't want to talk parents can become uneasy about why that is and they are not sure about what to do: shall they take action or are they supposed to give the child some more time to let things happen?

We recommend to always keep an eye out if yourchild has normal hearing or not, even if the newborn hearing screening was negative. Hearing disabilities can happen at any stage in life for example as a result of an infection. If you discover anything abnormal or irregular you shouldn't hesitate to take necessary steps. Treating hearing disabilities is very effective the earlier they are diagnosed and treatment is started.

At our office we offer all necessary exams and procedures for early hearing disability diagnosis in a child friendly environment. We offer audio and speech related tests as well as measuring the functions of the middle and inner ear. We use testing and procedures relevant for your child's age and we always discuss the results and possible treatment options with you in detail.
