Dr. McNamara and Dr. Capobianco are our full-time certified auditory specialists, with a combined experience of nearly 40 years in the field. Either of these ladies will meet with you for an audiological evaluation, a free screening we provide here at Mueller Pediatric. After you receive some feedback from screening tests, they will also follow up with you for CAPD therapy or aural rehabilitation sessions.
Choosing a Hearing Aid
There is no need to worry about researching children’s hearing aids on your own. Drs. McNamara and Capobianco are your resources for information regarding proper treatment and hearing assistance devices. We will consult with you and your child when it is determined a hearing aid is necessary and will factor in the unique needs they have in regard to hearing balance and possible physical disorders.
First-Time Hearing Aid Fitting
Upon choosing a hearing aid suitable for your child, we will ask you to come in for a custom fitting. Once we determine the extent of hearing loss and its cause, our audiologists will be able to cast a hearing aid that fits your child’s ear specifically.
Children's Hearing Aid Adjustments
After configuring your child’s hearing aid device, the audiologist on your case will schedule a series of follow-up appointments to ensure it is working optimally for your child. We will ask them to tell us how their hearing is improved and perform additional diagnostic testing. As part of your hearing aid fitting, we can perform adjustments as they are necessary to accommodate your child’s growth.
