When a child is born hard of hearing or deaf, a correct diagnosis and early intervention of hearing rehabilitation are of major importance. A child that is born deaf or hard of hearing will, if necessary with the support of sign language, learn the spoken language and fully develop this.
The ability to hear and understand makes it possible to, with the help of hearing aids, obtain information through audiobooks, voice support from the computer and the use of VoiceOver through the mobile phone, when the eyesight deteriorates. Besides, studies have shown that a good hearing rehabilitation leads to more self-confidence, a positive self-image and more social-emotional skills.
Even then there are many possibilities in communication for obtaining information and support in mobility.
