Could My Child Have a Hearing Problem?

​​​Any concerns about your child's hearing should be taken seriously. You know your child best.

In this video, Carlton J. Zdanski, MD, FAAP, FACS, Chief of Pediatric Otolaryngology at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and Surgical Director at the North Carolina Children's Airway Center, describes the process for evaluation and treatment for hearing loss in infants and children. He reminds parents that regardless of the severity of hearing loss, interventions exist which can be very beneficial to the child. The ABR and the OAE evaluations are effective tests for infants and children who cannot cooperate for a traditional hearing evaluation.
