Adults hearing loss
Hearing Loss is more common than your might think. One out of twelve (1/12) persons in India has hearing loss. In fact, over 33% of people in their 60’s suffer from using a hearing instrument.

In most cases the loss of hearing is a very gradual process and takes place over many years. As there is no sudden change, people may not be aware of the problem until it is severe enough to cause many communication difficulties.

As a result, many hearing impaired people (and their families) suffer needlessly for years before seeking help.

Lost sounds
There are certain areas of the brain that process speech sounds.
The ability to understand speech may deteriorate over time if the brain is not receiving all the speech sounds.
The longer a person ignores the problem, the more difficult the adjustments to hearing aids.

Better health for hearing aid users
Hearing well allows us to communicate with our family and friends and keeps us in contact with the sounds of life that surround us 24 hours a day.
So, a hearing impairment can cut down on the richness of experiencing life and restricts social interactions.

Improvement in the quality of life comes from better hearing skills
Individuals with managed hearing loss enjoy better physical and psychological health.
Hearing allows us to keep in contact with the sounds of life that surround us every day.

Two ears are better than one
We need to know where a danger might exist or to know which person is speaking. Two ears working together are better in helping us focus on a particular sound or speaker.

We need two ears to locate the source of sound.
Two ears help us hear clearly in background noise.
Listening with two ears is better than listening with one.

Signs of hearing difficulties
You should always be aware when your child does not respond appropriately to sounds. Sometimes a lack of response if attributed to inattention, but it is important to determine if inconsistent or no responses actually stem from an inability to hear.

Towards better hearing
The road to better hearing begins with an audiological evaluation for diagnosis. This is followed by the selection and fitting of hearing instruments, and finally a period of adjustment.

 
We start to develop languages from the moment we are born. At first, babies only make crying, sneezing, yawning and coughing sounds.
Many children with a pro-found hearing loss also can learn to speak if they are diagnosed relatively early.
Firstly, they need to be fitted with the right kind of hearing aid. Then, when the time is right, the can get special speech and language therapy.
If the hearing loss is so extreme that even very powerful hearing aids don’t help, your child can still learn to communicate.

Building the future
Children are our future. By giving them access to the wealth of sounds that enrich today’s world, Hearing is one of a child’s most previous senses. Through hearing, children develop language and communication skills, marvel at the sounds of our bustling world, learn to read, appreciate music and be warned of approaching danger.

There is no good reason to wait
Most people typically disregard their hearing loss for 5 – 7 years. But this is a bad decision. Putting off the inevitable will just make it harder to rectify the problem. Your brain gets used to not hearing everyday sounds and the longer you live without sounds, the harder it is for the brain to get used to comprehending them again. Regular hearing instrument use can prevent deteriorating of your brain’s ability to interpret sounds.
