Abstract

ABSTRACT

The Hearing Impaired Clinic was established at Children's Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati for the purpose of integrating a multifaceted effort of habilitation of the child with a hearing impairment. This article discusses the rationale for such a clinic and presents the data obtained from the first year that the clinic was functioning.

Details of audiological and otological evaluations indicate that there is still a significant delay in the habilitation of these children that could be countered by a greater awareness of the significance of hearing loss in the young child.
