Your Child’s First Appointment
When you bring your child to CRM Audiology for their hearing health, they will be treated with the utmost care and patience. We want your child to feel comfortable throughout their entire time at our office.
- To begin your child’s appointment, we will first have a discussion with their parent or guardian on where their child is having trouble hearing and what their concerns are.
- Then we will need to perform an otoscope exam of the middle ear by looking at their eardrum and ear canal. If your child is having a hard time with this step, we can skip it for the time being and move into testing.
- During your child’s initial appointment, we will always have two audiologists working together to provide care for your child. We will have one audiologist sit inside the sound booth with your child to help them through the hearing assessment.
- We use a number of pediatric hearing tests including play audiometry to assess your child’s hearing ability.
- After the hearing evaluation, we will discuss the results with you and go over treatment options and how to advocate for your child in their school.
