The Division of Pediatric Audiology at MCAM provides comprehensive diagnostic assessments and treatments for children with confirmed and suspected hearing disorders. We utilize an evidenced-based family centered approach to hearing healthcare.

Early diagnosis and intervention for children with a hearing disorder is imperative to their language development. Audiological services should be sought when a child or newborn does not pass a hearing screening, is delayed or suspected of being delayed in their speech and language development, or simply exhibits behaviors that raise concerns for a potential hearing issue.
