Is Your Child Hearing You?
A parent uses their voice to soothe a child before bedtime, to reassure them when they skin their knee and sometimes to redirect them when playtime gets a little too out of hand. Even before they recognize words, the tone of a parent’s voice can help a child understand a situation.
Sometimes it seems like our children are getting smarter before our very eyes as each new experience causes neural connections to form. But if your child can’t hear, they’re shut off from a huge source of development and could be falling behind their siblings and friends.
The Iowa Ear Center can evaluate children of all ages, including newborns, to identify and help find solutions to pediatric hearing loss. Pediatric hearing devices or treatment of childhood ear disorders could help get your child back on the path to being their happiest, healthiest self. Contact us today to schedule a consultation!
