A child with hearing loss can learn to listen and to speak. However, deafness and hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop speech, language, and social skills. For infants and children who are identified with hearing loss, research supports that the earlier the child with hearing loss starts receiving services, the more likely they are to reach their full potential and attain the skills they need for success.

If you are a parent/caregiver and you suspect your child has a hearing loss, trust your instincts and speak with your child’s doctor. If your child has been diagnosed with a hearing loss, don’t wait – learn as much as you can about hearing loss, communication choices, their education options and the potential results.
