Hear For Kids

HEAR For Kids™ is a program for children 0-18 years of age, in Arizona. It is managed by Lylis Olsen, a master's prepared audiologist. HEAR for Kids™ ,working with your own audiologist, provides loaner hearing aids, primarily for children with newly identified hearing loss. Permanent hearing aids can also be provided if the family meets financial criteria and does not have other insurance coverage. Vouchers for audiological evaluation or medical evaluation, to provide medical clearance for hearing aids, are also available to families with financial need.

As a result of this program, 170 loaner hearing aids are presently available to families. This program is funded by a grant from St. Luke's Health Initiatives and private donations.

Contact your audiologist to apply for the loaner or permanent hearing aid program. Requests for medical or audiological vouchers are accepted from school health, Head Start staff, audiologists, and other medical or early intervention professionals.
