CHILDREN

Why Parents Turn to House of Hearing for Their Children’s Hearing Health Needs

As parents, nothing makes us lose sleep more than our children facing health concerns.

Especially health concerns that aren’t clearly visible or have simple-to-understand symptoms.

The biggest problem with children with hearing loss is that it’s very difficult to measure without having a comprehensive hearing evaluation.

If a child has only experienced a certain level of hearing throughout their life, then they have no comparison of what their hearing should be like and similarly, children have an unbelievable ability to disguise any challenges that they may be facing.

Whether your child is struggling with communication skills, sometimes seems to have selective hearing, or is complaining about their hearing, then the first step is a hearing evaluation.

A children’s hearing evaluation at House of Hearing is quick, non-invasive, and pain-free, ensuring that we’re able to get an accurate understanding of your child’s level of hearing in a relaxed and friendly environment.

By choosing House of Hearing, you don’t have to take your child to a busy ENT setting surrounded by sick people. Instead, you visit a friendly team, which has been developed to be child-friendly.

To schedule your child’s initial hearing evaluation, call 801-657-4175 or complete the form on this page.

Meet Our Pediatric Specialist

Liz Hankins, Pediatric Audiologist, CCC-A

Dr. Liz Hankins, Au.D., CCC-A

As a fellow Utahn, Liz attended Utah State University where her undergraduate studies focused on communicative disorders and deaf education. Shortly after, she received her doctorate in audiology in 2012.

She has a broad scope of experience, including diagnostic testing for pediatric and adult populations, vestibular assessments, auditory-verbal therapy, and cochlear implants.

As the director of audiology at House of Hearing, she oversees diagnostic and hearing aid clinics in the ENT offices and supervises the resident and doctoral students that work in the clinic.

The job is difficult, but she is extremely gratified by the results the team can deliver and is always supporting her fellow teammates wherever she can.

She loves the whole team at House of Hearing, but her favorite part of working is having a job that makes a great impact on people’s quality of life.

It’s not uncommon for her to work alongside patients who are apprehensive to talk about hearing technology. Watching them leave with a smile on their face as a result of her service makes her so happy and she loves seeing their personalities grow.

In her spare time, she loves going to the movies with her 3 young daughters as well as hiking and rollerblading.
