Memphis, TN (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Professional Audiological Services is pleased to announce their eBook ‘Signs & Symptoms of Hearing Loss in Children’ is now available for download. By releasing this eBook, Professional Audiological Services aspires to educate parents on how to pinpoint both the general and specific symptoms of hearing loss in children of all ages.
According to The Hearing Loss Association of America, an estimated 30 in 1000 school-aged children suffer from some form of hearing loss. Without knowing the symptoms, parents risk missing vital signs of a persistent hearing impairment. Left undiagnosed and untreated, hearing loss will have a negative effect on the development of a child’s language and social skills. Early detection is vital to slowing, stopping, or even reversing a hearing impairment.
With 30 years of experience in diagnosing and treating hearing loss in children, Professional Audiological Services created ‘Signs and Symptoms of Hearing Loss in Children’ to provide parents with a reliable source of hearing loss facts.
“Many parents are not aware how subtle the symptoms of hearing loss in young children can be. We designed ‘Signs and Symptoms of Hearing Loss in Children’ to help parents familiarize themselves with the causes and warning signs associated with a hearing impairment.” - Dr. Loretta Coltharp
Professional Audiological Services hopes their eBook will improve parent’s chances of detecting hearing loss early on. They plan to release future eBooks focusing on hearing impairments and the hearing aid process. Visit the Professional Audiological Services website to download a copy of the ‘Signs and Symptoms of Hearing Loss is Children’ eBook.
