Hear the world – to learn

The educational path and opportunity of personal development of potential for a child in the nursery and in school is one of the most important pillars of optimal development and later success in life. If your child is affected by a hearing impairment, the development of the child, his or her school career and the choice of profession for your child appear to be suddenly called into question aginst that background. It important that parents are not left alone in this stage especially.

Whilst one in about every thousand newborn children suffers with a hearing loss, this grows to around five in every thousand in the age group between three and 17 years old. For many, a hearing impairment is only identified in nursery, partly because the child learns to adapt in its most intimate environment, the family, and compensate for the hearing impairment with great attention. It is only the subsequent manifestations, e.g., lack of attention and stamina, poor concentration, emotional insecurity, reticence and social withdrawal or speech abnormalities indicate any cause for action. The earlier in this case that hearing provision is ensured with modern technology and specific therapeutic or educational support is put in place, the better the affected child can develop cognitively and communicate without barriers with those around him or her.
