Our Universal Newborn Hearing Screening program provides a hearing screen to all babies born in Saskatchewan. This non-invasive test is often completed before baby leaves the hospital or soon after in an outpatient setting. The early identification of any hearing loss is important in order to support speech and language development.
Hearing health audiologists are available in Saskatoon and Regina and can assess hearing and provide intervention services such as hearing aid fittings for children from birth to age 18. These services are available at outpatient clinics and at the Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. Our audiologists often work closely with family doctors, pediatricians and ear nose and throat doctors to ensure the best hearing health for your child.
We provide a number of specialized services for Saskatchewan residents. Our team is able to assess if your child may be a candidate for a bone-anchored hearing device and cochlear implants. Surgery for these devices is available in Saskatoon for appropriate candidates. Programming of these devices and follow-up care is provided by the Hearing Health Services department.
