Hearing Loss Treatment
Hearing loss may be mild, moderate, severe, or profound. It can affect one ear or both ears and leads to difficulty in hearing conversational speech or loud sounds. ‘Hard of hearing’ refers to people with hearing loss ranging from mild to severe.
People who are hard of hearing usually communicate through spoken language and can benefit from hearing aids, cochlear implants, other assistive devices, and captioning. ‘Deaf’ people mostly have profound hearing loss, which implies little or no hearing.
Our hearing loss treatment rehabilitation services entail:
- Hearing assessment and ear examination. Early identification of hearing loss and ear diseases is key to effective management. We do these in clinical and community settings, as recently demonstrated with the ENT screening clinic at KUTRRH.
- Hearing technologies, such as hearing aids, cochlear implants, and middle ear implants
- Sign language and other means of sensory substitution, such as speech reading, use of print on palm or Tadoma, signed communication;
- Rehabilitative therapy to enhance perceptive skills and develop communication and linguistic abilities.
- Hearing assistive technology and services include frequency modulation and loop systems, alerting devices, and telecommunication devices.
