How to communicate effectively with your deaf child
September 29, 2017
Parents are the most important and primary source of teaching early language to their children. The quantity of language during the early years is important for the child's language development, which is linked to academic success.
The average age of identifying hearing loss in children is about 2 1/2 years. Parents of deaf children can develop their children's speech language skills better with the use of a hearing aid or cochlear implant.
These help children learn to understand speech sounds, which improves and promotes communication. Parents must make it a point to speak especially if the child is using a hearing aid or has undergone a cochlear implant as such input affects the children's communicative development.
They also need to improve the child's speaking ability, enhance the child's emotional development, understand the child, give short, clear instructions, keep track of the child's development, and listen when the child is trying to say something.
