About this clinic
Kennedy Krieger's Audiology Program exists to identify and manage communicatively handicapping hearing impairment in infants and children and to rule out hearing loss as a factor contributing to speech/language and developmental delays.
The program offers comprehensive audiological and hearing aid evaluations, auditory processing evaluation testing, aural rehabilitation, measurement of otoacoustic emissions and auditory electrophysiological testing (ABR, BAER, frequency-specific ABR, bone conduction ABR and ASSR). All staff have special expertise in treating multiply-handicapped infants and children as well as normally developing infants and young children with speech and language delays.
The clinic provides hearing aid dispensary services to provide conventional, programmable and digital hearing aids. In conjunction with Johns Hopkins Hospital Department of Otolaryngology, the clinic also offers otolaryngological services.
As one of the leading facilities in the country that provides evaluations and rehabilitation services to children with brain-related injuries, Kennedy Krieger Institute is dedicated to using its resources to help increase the number of qualified specialists in the United States and abroad. Every year, more than 400 people, from all academic levels, come to train with renowned experts from a wide variety of disciplines including audiology, education, genetics, health administration, nursing, nutrition, occupational and physical therapy, pediatric rehabilitation medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, psychology (behavioral and neuropsychology), social work, speech language pathology and spinal cord injury. The goals of the Institute’s clinical training programs are twofold: 1) to train leaders in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities and 2) to help ensure that there is a sufficient number of qualified professionals to meet the needs of children with special health care needs and their families. In addition to clinical training, the Kennedy Krieger Institute provides research training from undergraduate to post graduate levels and training to those who are already in the field. Publications, continuing education activities, outreach training, technical assistance and other dissemination activities are some of the ways that the Kennedy Krieger Institute meets its training mission. Newer technologies such as the world-wide web and distance learning techniques are being used to improve the care of children with special health care needs and their families.
