Did you know that Hearing Loss in children is closely connected to the development of a child’s brain

Managing hearing loss during the growing years is important and HAC helps in early detection of hearing loss.

Development of Brain in a Child

Most children with hearing loss are born to parents with normal hearing and the entire family learns about coping with hearing loss in children. Whether the child has had hearing loss at birth or later in childhood, getting the right solution as early as possible help the child to acquire language/communication skills.

What Causes Hearing Loss in Children?

Middle ear infection (Otitis Media)

Since the tubes that connect the middle ear to the nose aren’t fully formed in children, fluid can build up behind the eardrum. Even if there is no pain or infection, the fluid can affect hearing if it stays there. In severe and long-lasting cases, otitis media can lead to permanent hearing loss.

Problems at birth

Hearing loss in children can be genetic, happen during pregnancy or from prenatal care. Even if a pregnant woman has a health problem or when a baby is born prematurely, hearing loss can occur.

Illness or injury

Young children can lose their hearing after illnesses or severe fever. Besides, head injuries, very loud noises, and some medications can also cause hearing loss.
