Travels of "Sound"

Some children are born with a hearing loss. Other children, initially, hear normally, but progressively lose their hearing over time. Other reasons for hearing loss include illness, accidents, genes, trauma, or, simply, a fluke of nature. With the right tools and optimal intervention, most children adapt well and lead active lives just like anyone else. This article discusses the significance of understanding hearing loss and how to determine one's hearing abilities. The author stresses that the combination of early diagnosis and appropriate resources will guide the family in understanding their child's hearing loss and maximizing the child's potential.
