    Today, most babies with hearing loss can have access to meaningful sound. Either through hearing aids or cochlear implants your child can enjoy the delights of sound from an early age.

    Research indicates that children who receive cochlear implants at a young age can, with proper therapy, achieve spoken language skills commensurate with same age peers with normal hearing. Our multidisciplinary team will evalulate your child to help you determine if cochlear implants are the best treatment option.
