According to research, 5% of school children are affected by some type of hearing loss. In order to avoid permanent damage, it is crucial to notice, properly diagnose and promptly react to the problem, and then choose the appropriate hearing aid for your child.
The sense of hearing is vital to the child’s development. It initially allows the child to recognize voices, imitate sounds and develop language skills, and then it becomes essential to orientation in space and development of communication and social skills. That fact alone indicates that hearing is not only a crucial part of the sensory apparatus, but is also immensely important for the formation of personality and patterns of behavior.
The earliest age at which hearing loss can be diagnosed is at the maternity ward, and the optimal point for the diagnosis is in the child’s first months, when speech begins to develop. The aim of preventive testing is to diagnose the degree and type of hearing impairment and when it was caused, in order to avoid an irreparable damage to the child’s hearing.
The child’s social environment can also play a big role in the normal development of a child with hearing problems. It is not uncommon for the parents to have more difficulties with a child’s hearing loss than the child itself who was either born with it, or has developed it at an early age. This is why we cannot emphasize enough how important it is for parents to maintain a positive attitude and be very informed in order to ensure the best possible care for their child.
