Resources for Children with Hearing Impairment

Today, there are many resources for learning about hearing loss in children, and the selection and fitting of hearing aids. Organizations such as Alexander Graham Bell (www.agbell.org), American Speech, Language, & Hearing Association (ASHA; www.asha.org/public) and the American Academy of Audiology have links to view information on topics of pediatric audiology. With more and more children being identified with hearing loss at a younger age, it is important to evaluate and fit them with hearing aids as quickly as possible, to maximize speech and language development. Because fitting children with hearing aids should be coupled with providing education to the people they live and interact with daily (family members, teacher, peers), some hearing aid manufacturers offer pediatric product and accessories such as extended support materials for Hearing Care Professionals, family members, teachers and other caregivers to help children adjust to wearing new hearing aids.
