Are You Concerned About Your Child’s Hearing?

As parents ourselves, there is nothing that worries us more than our children, so when you suspect that your child may have a hearing loss or may be struggling to communicate due to their hearing, it can be a difficult time.

What Happens at a Child’s Hearing Appointment?

A Unique Process Created
for the Kiddos

When it comes to assessing the hearing of children, there are many factors to take into consideration including the age, the child’s responsiveness, and the mood of the child on the day (we’re also parents, we understand!).

That’s why we have a unique process depending on the child, aimed at making their experience as simple, relaxing, and stress-free as possible.

There are no intimidating white coats or stressful time limits – our team is dressed casually, has lots of fun with the children, and ensures that we win their trust in a relaxed environment before beginning any form of testing.

Non-Invasive, Simple and Friendly Experience

Once we have spoken to you to understand your concerns, any health conditions, and some background, and once we have won the trust of your child, we’ll ask you both to go into a sound booth for testing.

It’s non-invasive, it’s very simple, and we take our time to work with your child at a pace that suits them.

If you have a smaller child, we generally start without earphones to ensure they’re comfortable, and spend time to work with them to deliver an accurate hearing assessment.

We Understand That It
Can Take Time

One of the biggest stresses that parents have is their concern about hoping their child plays ball in the limited time appointment, but there is no rush.

If your child is struggling or not comfortable, we happily schedule another appointment to bring you back at a later time.

We understand that some kids are happy to get in the booth, while others do not feel comfortable and require much more time to get to know us, feel comfortable, and need the support of their loved ones.

What Was Betty's First Experience at Audicles Like ...
“My first sign of hearing loss was gradually realizing that I couldn’t hear and was missing too much. My first impressions of Audicles were that I would recommend them, they had a good reputation and local. I knew that I needed help and found them very easy to work with, very thorough and very likable. Hearing aids have impacted my life a great deal, I was missing too much of what was going on. My advice to anybody considering visiting Audicles would be that they’re an excellent choice and I think they would be very happy with them.”

What Would Brian Rate Audicles Out of 10? ...
“I first realized I had signs of hearing loss in the early 90’s, my biggest fear at the time was having to wear hearing aids and feeling old and deaf. I went to visit Audicles and if I had to rate my first impressions on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 12+. From day one of having my hearing aids, everything changed, when I take them off the world goes to only 50% hearing, so they really have positively impacted my life. I always recommend Audicles so if you are considering visiting, I would highly recommend and refer Audicles and Tracey Board.”

Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming ...
“My first signs of hearing loss started in 3rd grade, I had problems with my teacher, which in turn led to having a hearing test, which found high frequency hearing loss in my left ear. Audicles made me feel very comfortable right from the start and Dr. Watson’s passion to help kids hear better was very heartwarming, enough to keep me as a patient for 30+ years. My hearing aids have become a true blessing as I have gotten older, if you are considering visiting Audicles, don’t wait! They truly go above and beyond to help you.”

What Happened at 4 Year Old Hunter's First Appointment ...
“Hunter was just four years old when we found out he had a profound hearing loss in both ears and as his parents we were so worried Hunter would have to live with this disability and would always be considered different. As soon as his hearing aids were turned on, he ran to the window and said “trucks.” He could hear the traffic for the first time. When we got home to his Memi’s house, he could hear the peacocks and he was so excited … it was priceless. The impact hearing aids have had on Hunter’s life is incredible, Hunter says “I am able to live a normal life and communicate easily with my family and friends. I love to hunt and fish, which are two things I can do better when I can hear.” For anybody considering visiting Audicles, we would not consider taking Hunter anywhere else, they are the most caring people you will ever meet. We love Dr. Board and all of the staff, they are extremely helpful and welcoming at all times.”

She Always Made Me Feel Like I Belonged ...
“I was only two when signs of hearing loss were detected so I don’t remember my first appointment, but one of my earliest memories was visiting Dr. Jane with my grandpa. She always made me feel like I belonged and always greeted me with a smile and a hug. My first impressions of Audicles were awesome, I remember sitting in the hearing booth thinking I was in a spaceship! The impact hearing aids have had on my life is indescribable, I would not be where I am without the help of Audicles, Dr. Jane went above and beyond to help me. I would say to anybody considering visiting Audicles, what are you waiting for?”

There is Never a Better Time to Do It Than The Present ...
“I noticed the first signs of hearing loss at work, as I work with children in my teaching job, I found it harder and harder to hear them. My family were also giving me a hard time about the TV volume. I was so ready to increase my quality of life and not miss anything so I had no fears about visiting Audicles for my first appointment. I was made to feel right at home! They were professional, kind, patient and explained everything. Hearing aids have impacted my life in a big way, I can hear my grandchildren. I have been able to use mics and the technology offered for a variety of purposes was all for the good. If you are considering visiting Audicles, just do it! There is never a better time than the present. What do you have to lose?”

Wearing hearing aids has positively impacted my life as I can hear things now that I did not realize I was missing. If you are considering visiting Audicles I would say to go, you can’t find a better service.”
