Hearing Disorders in children
Hearing disorders in children may be present at birth or acquired later in childhood. Conductive hearing disorders that occur congenitally may be associated with various medical conditions. Signs and symptoms of hearing loss in children are often not recognized until a child has problems with speech. A hearing problem may be identified earlier if your child fails to meet certain milestones. If you feel your child has a hearing disorder, you should have it evaluated by a doctor.
