Hearing Loss Detection in Children

by rayovac17, July 2013

When the stork arrives and you are holding your newborn in your arms for the first time, your new child’s hearing ability may not be the first thought that pops into your brain. But I’m sure your baby’s health does. Checking your newborns hearing is just as important as checking for ten fingers and ten toes.

Children who have undetected hearing loss might not gain the cognitive abilities that are needed for learning, or may not be able to acquire normal speech and language. Children with hearing loss may be extremely stressed out because they may not understand why it is harder for them to learn simple material.

Babies should get their hearing checked before they are even one month old. Technology now allows hearing screenings on children a few hours after they are born. Most states even require hearing testing on newborns before they are to leave the hospital. If your child has hearing loss, you should consider the use of a hearing device or other communication options by 6 months of age.
