Sunshine Cottage Audiology COVID-19 Update

At this time, the Audiology team is working remotely and is in the office on a very limited basis. If your child is having a problem with his or her hearing equipment or is without sound, please call 210-824-0632 and leave a message. Audiology will return your call and work quickly to resolve your child’s issue. 

If your child has a Cochlear Implant (CI) or a BAHA and you prefer to reach out directly to the equipment manufacturer for repair which could be sent directly to your home, please contact your child’s CI manufacturer:

Cochlear Americas (CI & BAHA): 1-800-523-5798

Advanced Bionics (CI only): 1-877-829-0026

MED EL (CI only): 1-888-633-3524



At Sunshine Cottage, our team of audiologists serve as the student’s educational and primary audiologist. Our goal is to make sure each child has consistent access to sound, which is necessary for optimal speech and language development. We work together with the child’s family and all members of the child’s professional team.

Audiological services that are provided to students enrolled at Sunshine Cottage include:

  • Comprehensive hearing evaluations for all students
  • To ensure appropriate access to sound for each student’s speech, language and listening development, audiologists collaborate with each student’s educational team.
  • Earmold impressions and fitting
  • Hearing aid programming and verification for the student’s hearing loss using recommended pediatric settings
  • Programming for Cochlear, Med El and Advanced Bionics Cochlear Implant (CI) processors
  • Fitting and management of school personal assistive technology equipment (also known as FM)
  • Daily listening checks of hearing equipment (hearing aids, cochlear implants, BAHA, and FM) to make sure each child has access to sound
