What impact does poor hearing have on children?

In daily life, we must pay attention to protecting our hearing. Especially for children, although their hearing systems are very complete and sound at this time, they are also particularly vulnerable to damage. Therefore, protecting their hearing system is a very important thing. If their psychological system is damaged prematurely, it may have a huge impact on their future lives, which is very detrimental to their growth and life.


1. Language development: Learning language is a process of imitation. People will only imitate and speak after hearing the sound. If hearing loss occurs and hearing compensation is not carried out in time, it is easy for the child to be unable to hear sounds, resulting in delayed language development, slurred speech, or inability to speak. So: listening is the basis for us to learn language.

2. Brain development: Speech ability is an important indicator of children’s intellectual development. From birth to 3 years old, a child's brain is the most malleable stage. This process requires effective external stimulation to promote language development in the brain. Language loss has knock-on effects in language-related developmental areas, such as literacy and mental development.

3. Auditory understanding ability: The highest stage of auditory skill development is auditory understanding ability. It is the ultimate standard for measuring the development of auditory function of hearing-impaired children and the ultimate goal of auditory training. Compared with hearing children, the overall development level of auditory comprehension ability of hearing-impaired children is lower. As the hearing age grows older, the auditory understanding ability of hearing-impaired children will gradually increase.

4. Mental health: The mental health development of hearing-impaired children is also worthy of our attention. If a child cannot receive sound signals from the outside world and cannot express his or her thoughts, over time, he or she may become unwilling to communicate with others, have low self-esteem, and be withdrawn, which will affect his or her ability to live independently in the future.


5. Social life ability: Hearing is the most important factor affecting children's social life ability. Research results show that the social living abilities of hearing-impaired children lag behind hearing children of the same age, and all six behavioral abilities of children, except motor ability, lag behind hearing children of the same age. (Mainly based on work operation ability, communication ability, and collective activity ability)


Hearing is very important for a person, because many things rely on hearingTo perceive, if there is no hearing, this person will definitely lose a lot of happiness and a lot of meaning in life. There are many people who have lost their hearing in life who are undoubtedly very pitiful, because they cannot hear the beautiful music, the alternation of spring, summer, autumn and winter, and at the same time, they cannot hear their relatives calling to them, or their lovers' expressions to them.


When a child has hearing problems, what parents are most worried about is the child’s ability to study, work, and live independently in the future, which all belong to social life abilities. Research results show [1]: The social living abilities of hearing-impaired children lag behind hearing children of the same age. However, when a child is found to have hearing problems, early measures can be taken to effectively avoid the above-mentioned problems.

If a child's hearing is not good, it must be treated in time, which will be beneficial to the child's future growth and development. Understand the reasons for your child’s hearing loss, and you can treat it accordingly. If your child has poor hearing, don't take your child to a noisy place to avoid secondary damage to the child's ears.
