Canada celebrates speech and hearing month in May.
TORONTO, April 20 /CNW/ - Babies are being screened at birth for hearing loss in most (not all) provinces of Canada today. When identified early and given access to hearing technology and Auditory-Verbal Therapy the majority of children born with hearing loss today will learn to talk.
At one time hearing tests were conducted routinely at school but this is no longer the case. Undetected hearing loss can result in misdiagnosis and delays in language, speech and learning.
VOICE is committed to continuing to assure that children with hearing loss have the supports and services they need to be included in a hearing world.
