organizations, help for children with hearing impairment
Hearing loss in children is important to recognize as early as possible, because language patterns are learned at such an early age. It is difficult to diagnose hearing problems when the child is too young to communicate, so screening tests are essential. Parents need help diagnosing and learning about their child’s specific problem, with emotional family support, and with treatment and education for the child. There are a number of organizations that can form a network of support for hearing impaired children and their families.
