Hearing and Speech Center

Contact number | 202-476-5600

At Children’s National Hospital, our pediatric hearing and speech specialists diagnose, treat and care for children with hearing, speech, language and feeding disorders. We understand the impact that these conditions have on a child’s day-to-day life. 

Difficulties with communication can occur when simple things such as hearing the speech of others, understanding the teacher or asking for help can become a source of frustration. Our aim is to provide support and resources to assist with the social, educational and emotional challenges that can accompany these types of disorders.

Choosing Children's National for Hearing and Speech Care

Our team offers comprehensive hearing, speech, language and feeding care – from screening infants’ hearing to evaluating a child’s voice quality to developing customized treatment, management and parent or caregiver training. Our specialists are researchers, teachers and leaders in hearing, speech, language and feeding specialties. We offer complete care, from early screenings and intervention to sophisticated solutions to complex problems.

We pay close attention to the emotional frustrations of children struggling with lost or diminished abilities. We will help your child learn, heal and grow while adjusting to new ways of communicating with treatments or assistive devices.
