This clinic provides hearing testing and hearing counselling for children under age 16.

We test the hearing of any child under age 16 who is a resident of BC or the Yukon and who meets any of these criteria:

Newborn getting its hearing tested
Hearing testing of a newborn 

Audiologists are health care professionals who assess, diagnose, and prevent hearing and balance issues. Our audiologists have masters degrees in their fields and hold Canadian accreditation.  

Clerical support staff will book your appointments and help you find answers to your questions.  



We usually pre-register our patients. You should be getting a call from the Admitting Department a couple of days before your appointment. If you do not hear from the Admitting Department, please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment and report to the information and admitting area (in the hospital lobby) to register your child.

If your child has been pre-registered, please report directly to the Audiology and Speech Department, Ambulatory Care Building, Section K2-192 (Area 9).

If you have a cochlear implant appointment, report to the 1D clinic area in the main building. 

If at all possible, please arrange for care of siblings.


Patients who are seen through the Audiology Department will have various follow up recommendations, depending on their test results. 

Children are sometimes referred back to the doctor who referred them for medical care, some are referred to their local public health audiology clinic (BC public health audiology clinic listfor ongoing follow-up testing or fitting of amplification.  

Some children are referred for intervention or treatment services in their community.  

Follow-up plans will be discussed with caregivers and written in reports that are copied to them.
