1. Which ear is good for hearing aid?

If the child has residual hearing in both ears, in principle, they should wear hearing aids. For some reason, the following principles can be considered when wearing only single ear hearing aids:

1) if the hearing areas of both ears are different, the ear with large hearing area is preferred.

2) if binaural audiogram is different, the first choice is flat.

3) if the hearing loss of both ears is different, but within 60dB, the first choice is poor hearing.

4) more than 60dB for both ears, the first choice is better hearing.

2. How to help children with hearing aid adaptability training?

When children first wear hearing aids, they often feel uncomfortable and need a process of adaptation, usually around two weeks. At this stage, attention should be paid to helping children with the adaptive training of hearing aids.

1) at first, turn down the adjustment button of the hearing aid, and then gradually increase it to facilitate adaptation.

2) the time of wearing hearing aids is from short to long, such as 1-2 hours on the first day and 2-3 hours on the second day. According to the children’s adaptability, gradually extend the time until they feel good about wearing hearing aids and become dependent on them.

3) the training place should be from the quiet room to the natural environment with birds singing and flowers fragrance, so as to train children to adapt to various sounds.

3. What should children do if hearing aids are harsh?

When a child wears a hearing aid and feels a harsh sound or pain in the ear, he should first consider whether the volume of the hearing aid is too loud. If the volume of the hearing aid is not too loud, it is necessary to recheck the hearing threshold and pain threshold of the child’s bare ear to determine whether the child has revitalization phenomenon at a certain frequency. Most children can’t find out the pain threshold when they are naked. They can also judge which frequency they feel harsh by measuring the hearing threshold, and then take necessary measures. There are usually three solutions:

1) select hearing aids with peak clipping and automatic gain control functions.

2) place damping at the ear mold rubber tube or ear hook to reduce the phenomenon of revitalization caused by excessive medium frequency amplification.

3) adjust the tone of the hearing aid or change the acoustic hole and air hole of the ear mold to change the overall acoustic effect of the hearing aid.

4. What if the child still can’t distinguish the voice after wearing the hearing aid?

After children wear hearing aids, they can only hear the sound but can’t distinguish it. There are many reasons why they can’t understand the words. It is necessary to analyze the actual situation of children specifically:

1) it may be that the child has just put on the hearing aid and has not been trained in listening language.

Because language is acquired through learning, children can only hear sound without language learning, and it is a normal process that they cannot understand. Strengthening listening training is an important way to improve children’s listening ability. Parents can make full use of the content of the rehabilitation assessment question bank for hearing loss children (hearing assessment part). First, they choose the two syllable word pictures for hearing training. After the children master the sound and semantic of the pictures, the parents or teachers sit side by side with the children, but they need to avoid the vision and test the deaf children’s hearing map. The test results can reflect the children’s hearing situation and also judge the children A good way to test whether the content is clear and understood.

2) the other main reason is that the hearing loss is too heavy or the high frequency hearing compensation is insufficient.

At this time, according to the actual hearing loss of children, we should readjust or select hearing aids suitable for power and frequency response range, so that they can get reasonable hearing compensation and improve their listening ability.

5. What should children do when they are tired of reading newspapers after wearing hearing aids?

After wearing the hearing aid, the child is bothered to read the newspaper sound, indicating that the high frequency amplification of the hearing aid is excessive. It can be solved by adjusting the tone of the hearing aid to reduce the gain of the high frequency. If the effect is still unsatisfactory, the volume can be adjusted appropriately.
