Childhood Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can occur at any age and is the most common birth defect in the United States.  For very young children, the ability to hear is an important part of their social, emotional and cognitive development.

A mild or partial hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop speech and language properly.
