Genetic counselling

Genetic counselling gives information to anyone who has questions about a condition in themselves, their child(ren) or other family members which they think may be inherited, such as deafness.

You may want this information simply to understand your own situation better. Sometimes, having this information can help you make decisions about the management of your child's hearing loss.

You may also want to know if your child inherited their hearing loss and what the chances of them passing it on are.
