Hearing Loss – Identification, Impact and Next Steps

Hearing and listening are the cornerstones for learning for almost all children.

This means that hearing loss can cause learning challenges related to academic achievement, communication difficulties, and potentially result in social isolation, poor self-concept and even have an impact on eventual vocational choices.
