Our Approach

Pediatric Audiology is part of the Lions Children's Hearing & ENT Clinic. A multidisciplinary approach provides coordinated care with audiologists, aural rehabilitation Specialists and Otolaryngologists.

Our specialists identify hearing loss and help children who are deaf and hard of hearing reach their full potential. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to learn language and understand the world around them. It is our privilege to work with families every step of their journey.

Families can expect a lifetime of care from audiology, aural rehabilitation, and ENT providers through University of Minnesota Health. When our patients grow from being adolescents to adults, services can be smoothly transitioned to the University of Minnesota Medical Center.
