This article discusses the relationship between language development and degree of hearing loss and how these factors relate to the age of identification of hearing loss. An interesting effect caused by the interaction of these variables has been discussed in this article. The relationship of speech production, degree of hearing loss, language development, and age of identification are also presented. Social-emotional development of deaf and hard-of-hearing children and the variables that impact this development, in particular the strong relationship with language development, is included.
