Frequently Asked Questions
What is Digital & Analogue Technology of Hearing Aid?
Digital hearing aids convert sound received by the hearing aid’s microphone from an analog to a digital signal. This allows the hearing instrument to produce the exact requirements for a particular hearing loss; always keeping the loudness at a comfortable level. It also allows for advanced noise reduction features that distinguish between speech and non-speech signals, and automatically decrease loudness of those non-speech signals, if needed.
Analog hearing aids, by contrast, are unable to automatically adjust for different loudness requirements outside of increasing or decreasing the volume control. As a result, many analog users complain of having to constantly adjust their volume controls in order to hear speech adequately in different environments.
What is Speech Therapy?
Speech and language therapy provides support and care for children and adults who have difficulties in communication or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
What are the prevention and treatment for Speech problems?
Intellectual disability and hearing loss make children more likely to develop speech disorders. At-risk infants should be referred to an audiologist for an audiology exam. Audiological and speech therapy can then be started, if necessary.
As young children begin to speak, some disfluency is common. Children lack a large vocabulary and have difficulty expressing them. This results in broken speech. If you place excessive attention on the disfluency, a stuttering pattern may develop. The best way to prevent stuttering, therefore, is to avoid paying too much attention to the disfluency.
Speech therapy may help with more severe symptoms or speech problems that do not improve.
In therapy, the child will learn how to create certain sounds.
What are the Observation for Speech and Hearing in child development?
- Eye contact and visual preference for faces. Differentiated crying – has different cries for different needs. Shows preference for mother’s voice

- 3 Months your baby hears your voice he or she may look directly at you.
- 12 Months child will recognize favorite song. He or She may even try to join in.
What are Hearing Loss & Causes?
Hearing loss is a a impairment where reduce the hearing ability like normal. It happens due to ear infection, the ear structure not developed completely, aging, exposing to loud sound, head trauma, heredity, injury, complication at birth, toxic medicine.
What are different types of hearing loss?
Hearing loss can occur anywhere in the auditory system. There are major three types.
Conductive Loss:- Hearing loss in outer or middle ear
Sensory neural loss:- Hearing loss in the inner ear called “cochlear “ or Sensory neural
Mixed Loss:- A person with both conductive and sensor neural hearing loss combined, it said to have “mixed loss .”Another type of hearing loss is linked with the central auditory nervous system, which includes the auditory nerve, the brainstem and the brain.
A person is said to have conductive hearing loss if sound is prevented from moving from the external ear through the middle ear to the cochlea or if excessive ear wax or foreign objects are placed in the ear canal or if fluid gets accumulated in the middle ear or if damage is caused to the eardrum or middle ear mechanism. Person suffering from these type of losses can often be treated by medical and/or surgical treatment .It can become permanent and pose a serious health threat without medical treatment. Sensor neural hearing loss is due to problems in the inner ear and/or neural network. While the outer and middle ear conduct vibrations to the inner ear, some of the sensory hair cells within the cochlea are damaged and fail to pick up the complete nature of the sound. Sensor neural loss can be caused by aging, extended exposure to loud noise, use of toxic drugs and certain diseases. Due to the irreversibility of this kind of hearing loss hearing aids are the most common form of treatment.
