YouTube links on hearing loss can be helpful in doing your initial research when you learn that your child has hearing loss. Often times parents learn that their child did not pass the Newborn Hearing Screening at the hospital but get little to no answers until a follow up with an Audiologist.
These YouTube links on hearing loss are helpful in learning the basic information needed for your upcoming appointments. Some of the links discuss what an ABR is, how to prepare and what to expect. Others discuss how technology is helpful once you learn about your child’s hearing loss and what might be needed.
I hope these YouTube links are helpful to you to learn as much information as possible and be prepared with information and questions before your appointments.
