Auditory Impairment

Browse our content library for a wealth of articles on early intervention services for children with auditory impairment. Specialists at the Warren Center provide information on causes and possible therapy for hearing impairment. For example, parents and caregivers may need to find resources for auditory impairment stemming from genetic defects or conditions such as low birth weight or low oxygen at birth. If you suspect auditory impairment or hearing loss due to symptoms like difficulty talking, delayed speech, or intermittently ignoring others, it is important to review as much expertise as possible and schedule your child for screening for hearing issues.

Once your child has undergone the relevant screening, imaging, and physician evaluation for a prognosis of auditory impairment, our resources can provide more information on suggested treatment programs from professionals. For example, suggested treatment plans from professionals often include sign language, hearing aids, cochlear implants, auditory trainers, or a combination of these tools and devices. Whether your child’s hearing impairment is congenital or acquired, reading more about each of your physician’s proffered solutions can help you and your child feel more comfortable with the treatment plan.
