Pediatric Audiology

Conditions and Treatments

The team of audiologists with American Family Children's Hospital has special interest in the pediatric population, evaluating and treating children with hearing disorders.

Our specialists understand that evaluating the hearing of small children is very different from evaluating the hearing of older children and adults, and we have developed a special regimen of evaluation and care that effectively addresses the needs of our young patients.
