Hearing Center at Dell Children’s offers advanced technology, coordinated comprehensive care 

Children with hearing loss have special needs as they learn and grow. Navigating and coordinating their care can be complicated and at times stressful. The new Hearing Center at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas offers the first centralized, comprehensive care for diagnoses, treatment and therapy for people with hearing loss. The new center was featured on KXAN News.

Five out of every 1,000 children are impacted by hearing loss, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The center’s family-centered team approach ensures that each patient and family receives seamless care, from initial evaluation to rehabilitation.

“The new center provides a wide range of auditory, diagnostic and therapeutic care for children and adults in one location,” says Corrie Roehm, M.D., director of the Hearing Center at Dell Children’s. “From diagnoses to speech therapy, every step of the way our team is able to help them reach their full potential.”

Located in the Strictly Pediatrics Building next to Dell Children’s, the center offers the following services, all under one roof:

·        Hearing aids and bone-anchored hearing devices

·        Cochlear implant candidacy evaluations and mapping services

·        Both medical and audiological management onsite

·        Rehabilitative hearing care such as speech and auditory-verbal therapy

·        Coordination of complex hearing care to include educational, individual and family counseling
