Other Pediatric Services
For school age children, listening environments become more complex, the content is more demanding, and collaboration among other professionals like teachers and educational audiologists is required. At this point, an Interventional Education Plan (IEP) is developed and implemented. The IEP is a continually developing plan that, like Early Intervention, is a collaborative process. Everyone involved in the IEP will continually assess how the child is doing in school and adjust the plan accordingly. An IEP might include things like preferential seating, use of visual cues and preprinted materials, extended test time, and speech therapy. The intervention plan may also focus on teaching skills like self-awareness and advocacy, to understand when communication difficulties exist and how to overcome those obstacles. At a parent or guardian’s request, our Audiologists are happy to work with anyone on your child’s team. Dr. Evan Grolley is ESA-certified in Washington State to provide services for students.

We also offer other pediatric products and services like instant-fit or custom-fit earplugs to keep water out of your child’s ears while swimming, hearing protection for young musicians, and volume-limiting earphones to keep your child from listening to music at damaging levels.
