Hearing and Balance - Berkshire Health Foundation Trust

Especially for babies and young children, the ability to hear is important for understanding the world around them. It is also extremely important for the normal development of their speech. Hearing problems in children might not always be obvious, and their ability to hear may appear to change depending on their environment.

We provide audiological assessment and care for all children from newborn to school-leaving age living in the East Berkshire catchment area.

We also provide care for children with complex and multiple disabilities, children who are difficult to assess for whatever reason, and children who might be at increased risk of developing a permanent hearing impairment.
