How to make hearing-impaired children stop being "deaf"2022-03-04
With the development of medical technology, especially the development of hearing and speech rehabilitation technology, hearing-impaired children no longer have the only choice to become "deaf mute". At the same time, the full implementation of the "three early" principle makes it possible for hearing-impaired children to integrate into society like normal people. So what is the so-called "three mornings"? Why do we insist on "three mornings"?
Three Early: Early diagnosis, Early intervention and Early recovery.
Signs of hearing problems in toddlers
Early diagnosis: every newborn in China should receive hearing screening after birth. The main examination methods are Otoacoustic Emission (OAE) and automatic auditory brainstem response (AABR). The screening results are displayed as "pass" and "fail". If the newborn fails the initial screening, it should be re screened within 42 days after birth. If the re screening also fails, it should receive audiological and medical evaluation at the age of 3 months to determine whether there is congenital or permanent hearing loss within 6 months, which is what we call "the next diagnosis". The examination methods used in the diagnosis process are more and more complex, and the diagnosis results are often very comprehensive. However, some parents do not pay attention to hearing screening. When they fail to pass the preliminary screening, they feel that the newborn infants are just not well developed, do not take the hearing screening results seriously, do not re screen in time, or do not carry out audiological evaluation in the follow-up, and "do not know" about the hearing impairment of infants, which is "laissez faire", That will inevitably affect the follow-up learning and development of infants and young children.
Early intervention strategies for children with hearing impairment
Early intervention: according to the medical diagnosis proposed by the doctor, that is, the cause, location and degree of hearing loss, formulate the corresponding intervention plan to help each hearing-impaired child return to the sound world. There are many kinds of listening intervention methods. There is no best method, only the most suitable method. The most common intervention methods are the following two: fitting hearing aids and cochlear implantation.
How can I help a child with hearing impairment?
Early rehabilitation: after hearing aid selection and cochlear implant hearing correction, children need hearing function training and speech language rehabilitation training. Doctors, audiologists, speech language therapists, special educators and psychologists are required. It is very important to establish a long-term relationship with children to support children's hearing and language development, so that deaf children can hear sounds and understand speech. In the process of rehabilitation, parents are easy to fall into misunderstanding. Some parents are not aware of the importance of rehabilitation and mistakenly think that as long as hearing correction is carried out, they can naturally learn to speak, just like normal children. This is an unreasonable idea, because the voice heard by children after hearing intervention is different from that heard by normal people, and they can not reach the language development level of normal children through autonomous learning. In addition, some parents also mistakenly believe that trusting children in the rehabilitation class in the form of total care can be the same as normal children, which is also unreasonable, because parents play an extremely important role in the long rehabilitation process of children.
