Why Choose Duke

Team Approach

Our comprehensive team of audiologists work closely with speech-language pathologists, otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors), as well as otologists and neurotologists (doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating complex ear disease). They are specifically trained to treat children from infancy through young adulthood. When needed, we also collaborate with social workers and child life specialists to support and educate your entire family.

Specialized Speech-Language Pathology Services

We partner with pediatric speech-language pathologists, who help treat a wide range of communication and hearing disorders. Our speech therapists offer specialized services using “listening and spoken language” (or LSL) methods. The LSL approach requires advanced training to understand the connection between hearing and learning to use and understand spoken language. 

Patient Navigator

Our patient navigator is your one-stop shop for scheduling appointments, coordinating visits, communicating test results, and planning needed procedures. It’s their job to make your child’s treatment journey easier by guiding you through it step by step, and they are more than willing to answer all your questions along the way.

Educational and Social Opportunities for Kids and Caregivers

Throughout the year, we host free educational events to share resources and discuss topics of interest. By doing so, we hope to keep you updated on the latest information related to your needs and connect you with other families with children who have hearing disorders.

Family Support
Our clinical social workers provide information on financial and other support services available to your child and family. Our child life specialists help children understand, at a developmentally appropriate level, what will happen during tests or procedures. Our goal is to lighten your load so that you can focus on your child’s care.

Language Services
We have interpreters onsite for Spanish, Arabic, French, and American Sign Language. We can arrange for interpreters to join appointments in person or by phone for other languages as well.

Transition to Adult Audiology Care
Our pediatric audiologists work closely with audiologists who specialize in treating adults, and we are committed to supporting you and your child as they transition to adult care.  

Nationally Recognized Experts
We keep abreast of the latest treatments to enhance our practice and your child’s care. Our audiologists attend state, national, and worldwide conferences to stay current on best practices and share their expertise. Our specialists have undergone advanced training, and many have advanced certification in specialized areas. Our combined skill and leadership mean you work with some of the most knowledgeable and experienced audiologists in the country.
