When to consider implants for children
Selecting the right hearing technology is critical to your child’s hearing success. If your child is not hearing all sounds or not meeting milestones, it's time to consider hearing implants.
If you think or know your child has hearing loss, it can be a scary and confusing time. But, it's important to know you are not alone. Up to five out of every 1,000 babies are born with hearing loss or lose their hearing soon after birth.1 If your child is one of them, there is hope.
With the right technology and a little bit of hard work, your child has the potential to listen and speak just like anyone else their age. If you think hearing aids may not be providing enough benefit for your child, it’s important to consider a hearing implant sooner rather than later.
Learn how other parents have managed through this time, and understand the options available for your child.
