Hearing Loss

Hearing sounds and words helps children learn to talk and understand. A child with hearing loss misses out on these sounds. This can cause problems with speaking, reading, school success, and social skills. It is important to have your child tested if you think he has trouble hearing. Getting help early is key.

Hearing loss in children can lead to:

  • Delayed speech and language skills

  • Learning problems in school

  • Feeling bad about himself

  • Having trouble making friends (ASHA)
