Abstract

Factors Influencing Future Auditory Function and Human Development in Infants with Hearing Loss"?

Hearing loss is invisible and therefore historically has not been given the attention needed. If hearing loss is undetected and/or “rehabilitative” or intervention efforts are not begun as soon after birth as possible then a child’s language, emotional, and cognitive development will be affected which will contribute to literacy and other academic difficulties later. This is the second article of a two-part series that discusses the importance of early identification of hearing loss and the implications, discussed in the context of human development. Part 1 discussed hearing loss in general and its relation to human development in detail. Part 1 also briefly discussed the terms “Deaf”, “hard-of-hearing”, and “deaf”. This present article will discuss these terms in greater detail, and how early identification is important for all three groups when considered in the context of human development.
