Does hearing matter?


The quick answer is yes, hearing does
matter. If we lose our hearing, we have a
harder time communicating with the people
around us. It keeps us connected to the
people and even objects around us. Hearing
the phone or doorbell ring or holding a
conversation are just a few examples of our
hearing ability.
People should care about childhood
congenital hearing loss because they
shouldnt isolate people. If those with
hearing dont try to reach out or arent
patient with the people with a hearing loss
those may feel isolated.

Helpful suggestions

It is important to check your childs hearing


early, so they can get the help they need.
With some individuals they may need you to
enunciate words or speak a little louder. It is
always good to face the person you are
speaking too.
Dont be insulted if they ask you to repeat
yourself, this just means they want to make
sure they know what you said. Try to avoid
noisy environments and speak slowly. Try to
use facial expressions and gestures.

Angry or frustrated
Depressed
Irritable
Worried
Tired
Self-conscious

Hearing loss can also effect both the


community and society. It changes the way
people communicate with each other. The
cost of not addressing these changes may be
a loss of relationships
