Hearing loss and deafness: Overview

In Germany and other countries, it is routine practice to test the hearing of newborn babies, to be able to diagnose and treat hearing problems early on. This can help improve language development in hearing-impaired children.

Auditory‐verbal therapy for promoting spoken language development in children with permanent hearing impairments

Permanent hearing impairment greatly restricts a child's speech and language development and hinders his or her behavioural, cognitive and social functioning. Although technological devices, such as hearing aids and cochlear implants, enable the child to hear spoken words, they fail to teach the child how to listen, how to process language or how to talk.

Hearing loss and deafness: Hearing tests in newborns

In Germany and other countries,  newborn babies are routinely given hearing tests in order to detect and treat hearing impairments as early as possible. This can improve early language development in children who have hearing problems.Nearly all babies can hear well: 997 out of 1,000 babies are born with normal hearing. Up to 3 out of 1,000 newborns have a moderate or severe hearing impairment. Although these children hear a little worse than normal, most of them are not deaf. Without early hearing tests, hearing problems are often first detected when a child is between two and four years old. But hearing tests in newborns cannot detect hearing impairments in all children because some hearing impairments only develop later on in childhood.
