Importance of Early Intervention for children with Hearing Impairment

Hearing is critical for the development of speech, language, communication skills and learning. The earlier that hearing loss occurs in a child’s life, the more serious is the effect on the child’s development. Similarly, the earlier the hearing loss is identified and intervention begun, the more likely it is that the delays in speech and language development will be diminished.

This session dealt with the importance of early intervention among children with hearing.
