An introduction to unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in children.


This paper offers a general review of literature on issues pertinent to unilateral hearing loss in children. The paper focuses on such areas as demographic considerations, the importance of binaural hearing, the effects of noise on speech recognition, learning and educational factors, and auditory deprivation. It is concluded that there is sufficient evidence to suspect that children with unilateral sensorineural hearing loss can experience complications in communication and education. Finally, this paper presents the description of a research plan used in our study on unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in children.
