Every word matters to your children

Updated: Sep 24, 2020

Hearing is especially important in children, who are developing the skills they need to learn and communicate. Children learn to talk by listening to speech. Constant communication with your child can lead to better outcomes.



Helping your child with hearing loss succeed

There are many ways you can help your child be successful, including the following:

  • Actively participate and promote communication to your child. Establish routines around talking and reading books. Speak clearly and no further than 2 meters away. 

  • Encourage your child to wear their hearing aids. Understand they may not want to wear them. Celebrate small successes until hearing aids are worn full time. 

  • Be prepared for the unexpected. Carry extra batteries, utilize a hearing aid clip that attaches the hearing aid to their clothing, and carry the audiologist’s contact information.

  • Reduce background noise whenever possible. Make it easier for your child to hear.
