Abstract

Children with hearing loss occurring early in life have opportunities to develop language on par with their typical hearing peers. As a result of newborn hearing screening, children are routinely being identified with hearing loss prior to three months of age and fitted with hearing aids. Almost 95% of children with hearing loss are born to hearing parents, and most of these parents choose to communicate with their children using listening and spoken language, which requires consistent and effective use of hearing aids and language intervention.
