Schools are back in session, so now is the time to make sure that your child is getting the most out of his/her learning experience! Hearing is a critical part of a child’s social, emotional, and cognitive development. Even the presence of a mild hearing loss can affect a child’s speech and language development. Sometimes hearing problems are difficult to detect, so it is very important to make sure that your child is routinely tested as early detection is vital for early treatment and subsequent normal development.
Here at Evergreen Speech and Hearing we recommend that your child has hearing tests around each milestone of their development. Staying updated with your child’s hearing and speech development will strongly help you monitor their growth and learning abilities.
