Audiology

Being able to hear properly is important for every child for learning, speech development, and interacting successfully with others.

The Audiology Center has the specialized expertise required to test the hearing of children, infants through adolescents:

  • Assessment of children to facilitate appropriate recommendations for follow-up
  • Behavioral and electro-acoustical assessment of hearing aid benefit
  • Audiological testing in a child-friendly environment

The Audiology Center at Summit Speech School specializes in working with children so they can be tested properly and receive assistance if they need it.

Ruhani’s hearing is tested in our Audiology Booth.

Summit Speech School’s Audiology Center can be a valuable resource for you and your child. We not only test your child’s hearing but will also work closely with you to help you obtain the follow-up support you need should we determine your child has a hearing loss.

The Center is headed by our pediatric audiologist Sydney Abernathy. An expert in the field with 16 years of experience, her patients include children with developmental delays, as well as typically developing children with hearing, speech or learning difficulties.

Summit Speech School’s Audiology Booth was installed in 2005 and was donated by
The Healthcare Foundation of NJ.
