Each year in the United States, as many as 12,000 babies are born with hearing loss. Without testing, it can go unnoticed during the first years of life. Left untreated, hearing impairment can affect speech and language development, ability to learn, social and emotional development, and school performance.
At Children’s of Mississippi, we provide Mississippi families a team of specialists who can help detect and treat hearing loss in children. With early identification and intervention, children can get the help they need to learn, relate and grow.
