The Division of Audiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is one of the nation’s largest pediatric audiology programs. Our audiologists are specially trained to evaluate, treat, and manage hearing loss and balance care for patients from birth to 21 years of age. Our team of experts uses an evidence-based diagnostic approach and works collaboratively with other healthcare professionals, including primary care physicians, speech pathologists, developmental pediatricians, and otolaryngologists (Ear, Nose and Throat physicians - ENTs), to ensure your child receives the individualized care he or she needs. We are dedicated to educating and empowering families to ensure they have the information and technology required to optimize communication skills and educational outcomes of our patients.

Changing the Outcome

Early intervention improves outcomes. Research shows that early intervention can make a positive impact on development as soon as an infant or child has been identified with hearing loss. Support provided as a result of early diagnosis, treatment, parent education, and intervention opportunities can reduce the long term effects of hearing loss. Early intervention may include support from Audiology and other specialty services at Cincinnati Children’s, as well as state agencies, such as the Help Me Grow Early Intervention program that offers in-home evaluations and coaching assistance to promote optimal child development.
