Hearing Aids


My child with CdLS is 6 months old. A recent audiological evaluation determined that she is profoundly deaf and recommends hearing aids

1 - What sizes do hearing aids come in? She is now 8 lbs., 5 oz

2 - Is there a benefit to waiting until she is one year old or a larger size

3 - Would we be losing time in terms of gaining speech and language if we wait

4 - How are infants fitted for hearing aids?

Risposta dei nostri esperti

Hearing aids can be fitted to children of any age. There is a major advantage to fitting aids as early as possible. You should always maximize hearing to help speech and language

Ears and hearing

Hearing should be assessed in individuals with CdLS at an early age and should be followed up over time. Those with severe sensorineural hearing loss should be assessed for auditory neuropathy.
Regular eye (ophthalmologic) and ear, nose and throat (otolaryngologic) evaluations are recommended in adults with CdLS.
Otitis media (middle ear infections) with fluid build up and sinusitis in individuals with CdLS should be considered and treated according to the national guidelines for the general population.
