Hearing Loss and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD): Information for New First Parents and Families
Alzahrani, Amsa N.
Online Submission
Autism spectrum disorders are lifelong conditions that affect children's social and communication skills. Dual diagnoses pose additional challenges mainly because of the difficulties that come with making accurate decisions. It is intriguing to note that children with hearing impairments are more likely to have autism as opposed to members of the general public. As a result of this, it is critical for hearing impairments to be identified at an early age. Parents of such children may feel confused about the dual diagnoses of autism as well as that of deafness. Therefore, the intention of this research brief is to provide parents and families about the signs and symptoms of deafness and autism. It also provides them some recommendation about the intervention strategies that could be used with their children.
