Hearing Loss

 

Hearing loss and hearing impairment are terms used to describe a wide range of hearing losses that occur due to a problem with one or more parts of the ear or the area and neural connections in the brain which process sounds. On one end of the hearing loss spectrum are children who cannot hear sound at all. On the other end of this spectrum are children with less severe hearing loss, such as mild impairments in hearing or hearing loss in only one ear.
