We have wide range of digital programmable, comfortable technological hearing aids from the leading manufactures around the world that suits all types of hearing loss and budgets. All hearing aids contain the same parts to carry sound from the environment into your ear. However, hearing aids do come in a number of styles, which differ in size and the way they are placed in your ear. Some are small enough to fit inside the ear canal, making them almost invisible. Others fit partially in the ear canal, and some behind the ear.
There are many reasons why a child has a delay in speech. We do not advocate the 'wait and watch' policy but advice a speech and language assessment. Early identification is important for the success of therapy. A speech and language assessment involves not only assessment of the child's speaking skills, it also involves assessing other important aspects like understanding, play skills, social skills and other development etc. During an assessment, a parental interview and direct testing of the child's speech and language are done. The reasons for the delay are arrived at and the next step is to decide whether therapy is required or not. This serves as the starting point for therapy.
