Intervention is the most effective for newborns with hearing impairment within six months


According to China’s hearing aids, hearing impairment has become the world’s largest and growing sensory organ disease. Every year, about 6.5 children are born with severe hearing impairment.Experts call for the promotion of universal hearing screening and hearing intervention for hearing-impaired children as soon as possible, “early detection, early diagnosis, and early intervention, so that they can enter university and integrate into society like normal children.”

据中国产助听器了解,残疾性听力损失已达世界人口的5.3%(3.6亿),其中9%(3200万)为儿童。每年,约6.5万孩子出生时有严重的听力障碍。而在中国,每年出生新生儿1600万左右,年新增先天性听损婴儿1.6万-4.8万,中国儿童听力障碍康复面临巨大挑战。

在上世纪70年代到90年代,大约只有20%-25%的听障人群能够通过言语康复开口说话。而今天,80%以上的孩子都可以通过科技手段重返有声世界。

At present, according to the needs of children at different ages, a comprehensive staged management is the current method and the latest trend of children’s hearing impairment rehabilitation.

0-3岁是儿童聆听的重要阶段,也是言语发展最初也是最重要的阶段。孩子不容易听见、听清,也就更不可能准确发音。4-8岁的孩子有了初级沟通的需求,要和同学们一起交流,需要完整的声音感知能力。到了9-12岁,学业竞争相对较大,听障儿童需要和同学们一起上课,面对较为严苛的聆听环境,需要在噪声中聆听得更清晰。而13-18岁,他们的户外需求大大增加。科学医疗方案普及亟待推广不过,尽管在早期发现听力障碍和适当地治疗上有飞跃性的突破,但并不能保证每一位听障患者都能享受到科学的医疗方案并康复,特别是发展中国家的听障儿童。
