Hearing Tests for Children in Calgary

Hearing loss is a common birth defect

Hearing is a critical part of our kids’ social, emotional and cognitive development.

In the first few years of life, hearing is a critical part of our kids’ social, emotional and cognitive development. Hearing loss is a common birth defect, affecting about 1 to 3 out of every 1,000 babies. Hearing loss can come at any age from infections, trauma, medications or unknown causes. Even minimal or partial hearing loss can affect a child's ability to speak and understand language. The good news is, hearing problems can be treated if they're caught early. So it's important to get your child's hearing screened early and tested regularly.

Symptoms of Hearing Loss

If you’d like to schedule a hearing test for children in Grande Prairie, choose Soundwave Hearing Care. Even if your newborn passes the hearing screening, continue to watch for signs that hearing is normal.

Some hearing milestones your child should reach in the first year of life include:

  • Most newborn infants startle or “jump” to sudden loud noises

  • By 3 months, a baby usually recognizes a parent’s voice

  • By 6 months, an infant can usually turn his or her eyes or head toward a sound

  • By 12 months, a child can usually imitate some sounds and produce a few words, such as mama or bye-bye

As your baby grows into a toddler, signs of hearing loss may include:

  • Limited, poor or no speech

  • Frequently inattentive

  • Difficulty learning

  • Often increases the volume on the TV

  • Fails to respond to conversation-level speech or answers inappropriately to speech
