Hear & Be Heard!


The Centre for Hearing Intervention & Language Development (CHILD) is a one-stop centre catering to adults and children with hearing, language and communication problems. The team comprises Consultants (ENT), Audiologists, and Speech Language Therapists who specialise in hearing related disorders.


The clinic was first set up in 1999 to provide basic hearing aid services. With greater emphasis on timely diagnoses and early intervention, the team has since expanded to provide a host of services ranging from basic hearing screenings to full diagnostic tests, for both children and adults. 


Our aim has always been to provide the highest quality healthcare to all patients supported by specialised equipment and techniques. In addition, the clinic emphasises the importance of family and caregiver support.


Our mission is to integrate the hearing impaired into mainstream society by providing prompt and efficient diagnosis and management through appropriate hearing amplification and auditory verbal therapy approaches. Multi-modal approaches are also offered for patients who may require additional support.
