One of the most rewarding things a parent can experience is witnessing their child shine in an academic setting. When children excel in school, they often have a greater number of opportunities during their transition into early adulthood. That’s why we do our best to give our children every possible advantage. At Heuser Hearing Institute, we understand how it feels to want what’s best for your child, so we encourage all parents to learn more about the effects speech and hearing impairments may have on children.
Parents are often surprised to learn that hearing loss or communication delay can significantly impact a child’s intellectual and emotional development. When left untreated, it may also negatively affect his or her social skills. Children experiencing a developmental delay will likely have more difficulty in school than their peers.
To prevent a delay from negatively affecting your child’s education, early intervention is key. When communication conditions are treated early and are managed effectively, normal growth and development is possible. At Heuser, we offer a comprehensive Early Intervention Program that aims to assess, diagnose and treat developmental delays. Some of our services include:
- In-home assessments
- Communications testing
- Hearing loss and auditory treatments
- Speech-language therapy
- Group intervention
