Does my child need a hearing test?

If you have any concerns about your child’s speech and language development and are wondering whether your child has difficulty hearing, you should arrange to have your child’s hearing assessed. Hearing problems can have a significant impact on the development of your child’s communication development.

If your child is under 2 years and has not had hearing screening, please call: Tri-Regional Infant Hearing Program at 1-888-703-5437 ext. 4 to arrange hearing screening. Over the age of 2 years, you can ask your family doctor for a referral to an audiologist, if your child hasn’t been screened, has had ear infections or there are other reasons to be concerned about your child’s hearing.
