Children with hearing loss or hearing impairment may be able to hear some sounds or nothing at all. “Impairment” means that something isn’t working correctly or as well as it should. Kids may be born with hearing loss. Or, it may be caused later by things like an injury or infection. If your child has hearing loss, our Nemours audiologists will work with you to figure out what’s going on. And we’ll help you become an expert in your child's hearing loss so they can do and feel their best as they grow.
