The Women's and Children's Hospital is located on the traditional lands for the Kaurna people, and we respect their spiritual relationship with their Country. We also acknowledge that the Kaurna people are the custodians of the Adelaide region, and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

Children’s Audiology Service, a state-wide initiative, provides comprehensive audiological care for children aged from infancy to 18 years.

The Children’s Audiology Service operates at two main sites – the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and 295 South Terrace, Adelaide – with periodic visits to several regional locations.

We offer both inpatient and outpatient care, employing electrophysiological and behavioural assessment techniques to evaluate and manage a child’s hearing. Our comprehensive services include:

  • Neonatal hearing assessment
  • Hearing surveillance for children at risk of hearing loss
  • Assessment for suspected or confirmed hearing loss
  • Evaluation for children with speech, language or developmental concerns
  • Support for Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist Outpatient Clinics
  • Cochlear implant candidacy assessments
  • Ongoing management, including programming (MAPping) for cochlear implant recipients
  • Emotional support and early intervention informational counselling facilitated by the Family Support Coordinator – Hearing

Our audiologists collaborate with a diverse team, including allied health professionals, medical officers and community agencies, to deliver comprehensive hearing healthcare.
