Hearing Aids 
 
 


Welcome to the Pediatric Audiology Department at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center.

The Audiology Department at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center is currently developing a Hearing Aid Program which is projected to begin in the near future. 

If we detect that a certain hearing loss requires the use of hearing aids, our Audiologists will:

      Counsel your family about the hearing loss and its implications.

      Refer your child to our ear, nose and throat (ENT) department
         for evaluation and to obtain medical clearance for hearing aids.

      Conduct a hearing aid evaluation.  The hearing aid evaluation
          is a time to discuss various hearing aid options and select a 
         device that is appropriate for your child and his or her hearing 
         loss

      Fit the hearing aid.  Your child will receive his or her hearing
         aid at this appointment and your family will be taught how to
         use and care for the hearing aid.

      Direct your child’s family to programs of assistance when
          appropriate.

      Monitor your child’s hearing loss.

      Provide hearing aid checks to be certain that the hearing aid is
         functioning properly and is still appropriate for your child’s
         hearing loss.
