Hearing is a precious sense for children of all ages. Babies hear speech and learn to understand what people around them are saying long before they speak their first words. Infants and young children use hearing to learn, read, speak, make friends, discover the sounds of the world and be aware of their surroundings. And for teens, hearing allows them to connect and feel part of the crowd.
