Parental survey shows barriers for children with hearing loss and families

A study shows how children with hearing loss and their families face barriers when receiving the services and care they need

The survey consisted of 1000 responses from parents with children under the age of 15 years who suffer from hearing loss. 80% of the respondents had a child who had benefited from newborn hearing screening as well as learned spoken language.

In the survey, the parents said that the public school options and the cost and quality of language services available were barriers to obtaining the proper care for their children.
