Hearing loss is one of the most common congenital disorders. Early detection and management of hearing loss is crucial for the best speech, learning, and social development outcomes.
• Muffled hearing.
• Difficulty understanding what people are saying, especially when there are competing voices or backgound noise.
• Listening to the television or radio at a higher volume than in the past.
• Avoiding conversation and social interaction.
Our friendly team of audiologists, auditory-verbal therapist and ENT surgeons provide a one-stop service for our patients
Some children with normal hearing test results may still complain of hearing loss. They may be mistakenly diagnosed as lying, badly behaved or autistic. In fact, they may have disorders of processing sounds like Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), or hearing dys-synchronisation (Auditory Neuropathy). Special tests are performed to exclude the possibility of these conditions.
A complete range of conventional, digital and bone conduction hearing aids are available. Nowadays, a cochlear implant device surgically placed into the inner ear allows profoundly deaf children and adults to hear. Auditory-verbal therapy post- implant is crucial and provided here.
