Hearing loss can impact a child’s potential communication, language, and social skills development. Intervention with hearing health care services is most likely to help children reach their full potential when treatment begins as early as possible. If you suspect that your child may experience hearing loss, contact your child’s doctor as soon as possible. A pediatric audiologist can help address your concerns and, if needed, begin treatment for your child’s unique hearing health care needs. For additional pediatric hearing resources, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/hearingloss/index.html.
