Most deaf children still have residual hearing, which can be improved by sound amplification, and the potential speech and language ability of the child can gradually realize the reconstruction of verbal communication ability. Therefore, in the process of rebuilding the verbal conversation ability, we should first improve the hearing of deaf children in quality and quantity so that they can get as much speech and language information as possible.
Now, there is a whole set of methods for selecting and evaluating hearing aids for adults, and the rationality of the matching results and the problems of the patients can be obtained through inquiry. But for children, although there are some similar methods, there is no way to get valuable feedback from children, so these options cannot be considered to be sufficiently reasonable or fully acceptable. Therefore, when choosing a hearing aid for several children, at least:
1. Quantitatively assesses children’s residual hearing as accurately as possible and seeks to understand the child’s hearing improvement after wearing a hearing aid to gain parental and teacher support.
2. specifies and provides an amplifier that is best suited for children. Should have used the support already. Some language perception, psychoacoustic and psychological linguistics knowledge, to understand the characteristics of children’s residual hearing, provide a variety of electroacoustic characteristics that help to correctly select hearing aids, from the face to choose hearing aids that meet the hearing needs of several children.
3. Evaluate the success of the match. In the matching process, observe the relationship between the residual force of children and the electroacoustic characteristics of hearing aids. Measuring the development of hearing and speech In the assessment, the hearing test is important, but the accuracy of the hearing aid selection does not depend solely on the hearing test results. The doctor still needs to know the growth and improvement of the listening and speech skills of several children after wearing the hearing aid through the parents and related personnel, and then make a correct assessment of the hearing aid selection according to the real life performance of the children in the family and school.
4. Checks and modifies the electroacoustic performance of the hearing aid based on the test data. The choice of hearing aids is not a one-off commercial activity, but a continuous multiple follow-up process that can even be extended to children’s daily lives. Follow-up can provide a number of useful information for reference, and the electroacoustic indicators of the initially selected hearing aids should be modified accordingly with the wear and hearing of several children.
The role of parents and teachers is important in the selection of hearing aids for children. They are the link between several children and physicians, and also the main influencing factors for the success of hearing rehabilitation in several children. Practice tells us that a “perfect” hearing aid is not the most important for children, and the normal and continuous use of hearing aids, training in the hearing environment, plays an important role in hearing rehabilitation. Therefore, the selection of hearing aids for children is actually a process in which physicians work with parents and teachers.
