Hearing loss is often thought of as an “adult problem”—in reality, though, it widely affects people of all ages. Approximately 3 out of every 1000 babies born in the U.S. has a measureable hearing impairment, and over 1.4 million American children suffer from pediatric hearing loss. Hearing loss can have major effects on a child’s development and learning, so identifying and addressing hearing loss early in children should always be a top priority.
