Children’s Aural Rehabilitation
Aural rehabilitation for children requires an entirely different approach than aural rehab for adults. Since so much of our ability to listen and communicate is developed at an early age, young children with hearing loss face a set of challenges and even certain cognitive delays.
In order to best support children with hearing loss so that they can improve their listening and communication skills, Associated Hearing centers its pediatric aural rehabilitation efforts on three core factors:
- Understanding the severity of the listening and communication impairments
- Understanding the type of hearing loss the child is experiencing
- Understanding when the hearing loss occurred, diagnosed, and, if ever, treated
Hearing aids can dramatically improve a child’s communication abilities, especially if the hearing loss is detected, evaluated and treated as early as possible. The sooner we can start working with your child, the more we can likely improve their listening, hearing, and communication outcomes.
We take these processes very seriously and are honored to work with you and your loved ones at this crucial state of the hearing journey.
