Hearing Loss In Children

May 31, 2018

What Are The Signs?

Hearing loss in children can occur at any time in life from other acquired factors such as ear infections, head trauma, certain medications, and genetic factors.

You may suspect your child has a hearing loss if you observe any of the following:

Failed newborn hearing screening

Delays in speech and language acquisition, including baby babbling

Frequent ear infections

Not startling to loud sounds

Not turning to the location of sounds after six months of age

Difficulty following verbal directions

Daydreaming in many situations

Concerns by school teachers or failed school hearing screening

Loud volume on the TV or radio

Complaints from the child that they cannot hear

A pediatric audiologist is trained to test children of all ages.

Any symptom of hearing loss in children should be addressed promptly so that speech, language and academic development are not delayed or impacted.

Welcoming Carpenter Ear & Hearing Center to the Network

May 24, 2018

The Green Bay News Network is proud to Welcome our newest Member, Carpenter Ear & Hearing Center!

We asked Larry Carpenter, Clinical Audiologist, to share a bit about himself and his practice:

After graduating with a Master of Science degree from the University of WI-Oshkosh in January, 1985, I began my adventures in Audiology in Des Moines, IA. I worked in medical, clinical, hospital and educational settings for the next 22 years.

I have been living and working in Green Bay for the past 28 years.

Carpenter Ear and Hearing SC began in August, 2007. Being in my own business has been very enjoyable. I owe much of this enjoyment to the patients that I see and work with on a daily basis.

My professional interests are in hearing loss, hearing aids, balance and dizziness disorders, and ear protection. With the knowledge I have gained throughout the years I hope to provide people with a pleasant experience in a caring atmosphere at a very reasonable cost. I also try to have some fun while helping people improve their lives!
