Our Audiologists receive extensive training to ensure that your child gets the hearing care that they need.

Why do some children require our hearing services?

Children can be prone to ear and hearing problems and it’s very important to have them addressed as soon as they are noticed to avoid any developmental or learning issues. All Australian States and Territories fund newborn hearing screenings to identify any hearing loss as early as possible but other issues can develop as children grow.

What can cause hearing loss in a child?

Some types of hearing loss may not present at birth, so it is important to consult a professional if you think your child may have hearing impairment. Early intervention results in significantly better outcomes for speech and language development and other important milestones.

Hearing loss in children is frequently caused by a build-up of fluid behind the ear drum (glue ear), which often clears up. If it doesn’t, we will refer you to your GP, or to follow-up with an Ear Nose and Throat specialist (ENT).

How to detect if your child has a hearing problem

Some children are diagnosed with a ‘sensorineural’ hearing loss, caused by a problem with the inner ear, which is usually permanent. We refer them on to an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist (ENT).

Why choose Country Hearing Care for your child?

If you would like your child to be seen privately at one of our clinics, you do not need a referral. It is our policy that only our qualified Audiologists, who have specialised paediatric audiology training, may assess children under the age of 13 years.

Country Hearing Care provides free children’s hearing health services at the Mildura Base Public Hospital. All you need is a referral from your GP, Maternal & Child Health Nurse, Speech Pathologist, School Nurses, ENT or Paediatrician.

To book an appointment, please contact the Mildura Base Public Hospital Allied Health Department on (03) 5022 3333.
