Norton Children’s Audiology, formerly Little Ears Hearing Center, is a growing pediatric audiology center. We offer a wide range of services as noted below. Norton Children’s Audiology has historically been known in the region for our caring and family-centered approach to care, as well as our multidisciplinary collaboration. Our staff currently consists of six audiologists (1 with PASC certification, 2 with CH-AP certification), two SLP’s who exclusively serve children with hearing loss, a deaf educator/early interventionist, two ENT physicians, and one ENT ARNP. We provide clinical education opportunities to AuD students enrolled at the University of Louisville, so there are opportunities for the extern to interact with peers from another academic program.

Upon completion of the 4th year externship at Norton Children’s Audiology, the selected candidate will be well-qualified for employment in any pediatric audiology setting in the country.
