Achievement of optimal communication potential for all children.
Making a positive difference for children and their families as the province wide centre for specialized pediatric audiology.
Hearing testing is provided on a referral basis or through interdisciplinary team assessments. We also provide hearing testing on an on-call basis for the otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat doctors) here at BC Children’s. Our staff do not dispense hearing aids, rather we work with our community partners to ensure that children receive the assistance they need. Hearing testing, hearing counselling and cochlear implant services are all provided.
We have a close relationship with the BC Early Hearing Program.
The neonatal follow-up clinic, the cleft palate & craniofacial team and the oncology teams at BC Children's all have some Audiology Service.
