32 million children around the world live with ‘disabling’ hearing loss. Hearing loss is common and can negatively affect multiple aspects of an individual’s life when unaddressed or when individuals’ communication needs are unsupported. Auditory deprivation can detract from quality of life and access to spoken communication, which can impede development of child spoken language and contribute to the risk of dementia

Symptoms of hearing loss may include:
  • Muffling of speech and other sounds.
  • Trouble understanding words, especially when in a crowd or a noisy place.
  • Trouble hearing the letters of the alphabet that aren’t vowels.
  • Often asking others to speak more slowly, clearly and loudly.
  • Needing to turn up the volume of the television or radio.
  • Staying clear of some social settings.
  • Being bothered by background noise.
  • Ringing in the ears, known as tinnitus.

How hearing loss can occur:

Causes of that enhance the condition for hearing loss :

  • Injury to the inner ear. Aging and loud noise can cause wear and tear on the hairs or nerve cells in the cochlea that send sound signals to the brain. Damaged or missing hairs or nerve cells don’t send electrical signals well. This causes hearing loss.
  • Higher pitched tones may seem muffled. It may be hard to pick out words against background noise.
  • Accumulation of earwax. Over time, earwax can block the ear canal and keep sound waves from passing through. Earwax removal can help restore hearing.
  • Ear infection or unusual bone growths or tumours. In the outer or middle ear, any of these can cause hearing loss.
  • Crack develops in eardrum perforation. Loud blasts of noise, sudden changes in pressure, poking an eardrum with an object and infection can cause the eardrum to burst.

Types of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss can mean many things, from the slight inability to hear birds sing to total deafness. Confused about the type of hearing loss that you or a loved one. Hearing loss is typically divided into two categories: conductive hearing loss and sensorineural hearing loss. You can also have a mixed hearing loss, which is a combination of the two.

Sensorineural Hearing Loss

Sensorineural hearing loss happens when there is damage to the inner ear or to the nerves that travel from the ear to the brain.

Conductive Hearing Loss

Conductive hearing loss occurs when the passage of sound is blocked in either the ear canal or in the middle ear.

Discrimination Hearing Loss

Having a hearing loss does not simply mean the inability to hear loudly enough. Some people may also have great difficulties hearing within a specific and narrow frequency region. This can result in what is known as “discrimination loss”; one can hear speech but not understand it.
