Why We're Here
Hearing Kids is changing the world of audiology. When we evaluate children’s academic or behavioral issues, we don’t just look at what the problem is, but why the problem is occuring. By evaluating patients holistically, Hearing Kids can help each child reach their full potential.

Why Parents & Educators Turn To Hearing Kids
Hearing Kids isn’t your ordinary provider. In assessments, we use objective measures in combination with the classic behavioral measures to get to the heart of the problem and avoid misdiagnosis. We understand the complexities of auditory processing issues. That’s why our treatment plans are personalized, based on children’s individual test results. We are well-versed in multiple areas of audiology, concentrating on auditory acuity, auditory processing, neurological development, and academic excellence. Our diverse toolbox includes the latest and most effective methods for helping children with auditory processing issues, providing everything from therapeutic listening to customized earplugs. When parents and educators need answers and solutions, they come to us.
Who is this for?
If your child is struggling academically or having behavioral issues, the problem could be their auditory processing. But auditory issues can be difficult to evaluate and diagnose. Parents and educators can go from provider to provider searching for answers. And even when they get an answer, it’s not always correct. Children are often misdiagnosed with ADD, a learning disability, language impairment or even a mental illness. If this has happened to you, or if you’ve never gotten an answer, Hearing Kids can help. We are committed to getting your child the treatment they need. We work with children of all ages, specializing in ages 10-16.
How We Work
Every journey with Hearing Kids begins with an easy consultation. Our objective assessments only require your child to sit quietly while we do all the work. We have expertise in multiple areas, including auditory acuity, auditory processing, neurological development, and academic excellence. And if your child needs a treatment we don’t provide, don’t worry! We can refer you to the best places for your child to get the care they need. Hearing Kids is committed to being a helping hand in your search for answers.
