"If your baby wears hearing aids only four hours each day, it will take six years to give him as much listening experience as a normally hearing infant accumulates in one year."
(Stovall, D. . Teaching Speech to Hearing Impaired Infants and Children. Springfield, IL: Charles C. Thomas.)
The day your child begins wearing hearing aids is the day you start helping him overcome some of the challenges created by hearing impairment!
The American Speech-Language Hearing Association maintains an excellent set of articles and resources for patients and families regarding Speech-Language Hearing issues. Their article on Hearing Aids for Children provides more detailed information.
