Duke pediatric hearing and communication specialists work together to evaluate and treat a wide range of hearing disorders in children of all ages. From newborn hearing screening to cochlear implants, we customize diagnostic and treatment options according to your child’s age and your family’s goals. Ultimately, we aim to improve hearing ability so your child can learn to speak and communicate effectively, thrive in school, and enjoy a better quality of life.

Our comprehensive team of providers includes audiologists and speech language pathologists as well as pediatric otolaryngologists, otologists, and neurotologists (who treat ear diseases that may be causing hearing loss). 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.
