Hearing difficulties can affect a child’s ability to learn – both socially and at school.

Children with a hearing loss may experience speech and language delays, educational difficulties, behavioral problems and often require increased support.

Some common warning signs of hearing problems in children:

  • Says “what?” or “huh?” often
  • Not startling to very loud sounds
  • Attention or behavioural problems
  • Inability to detect incoming sounds
  • Speech/language delay or differences
  • Difficulty understanding speech in background noise
