    Additionally, our team will:

    • monitor the hearing loss
    • provide counseling to you and your family regarding the hearing loss
    • recommend hearing aids and ways to maximize the use of residual hearing
    • refer your child for additional language or developmental assessments
    • direct you to community resources for educational or financial assistance
    • refer your child to Habilitative Audiology to learn about the option of a cochlear implant if your child has a severe to profound hearing loss in both ears
