Influenced by heredity, drugs, < a href = "" target = "_blank" > Noise < / a >, diseases and adverse pregnancy and childbirth, 20000 to 30000 new hearing impaired children are born in China every year. Although the total number is small, deafness will seriously affect the normal development and development of children’s language, intelligence, psychology and other aspects. If we do not take active and effective measures, it will cause lifelong disability.

Our government attaches great importance to the problem of children’s deafness. As early as 1987, the rehabilitation of deaf children has been included in the national long-term rehabilitation plan for disabled people. By the end of 2006, more than 1700 rehabilitation institutions for deaf children have been set up in various parts of the country, 260000 of them have received rehabilitation training, of which nearly 30% have entered eight ordinary kindergartens and primary schools. Many children have been admitted to domestic or foreign universities or graduate schools, and some have become an important force to create social spiritual and material wealth. These facts fully show that it is completely possible for deaf children to return to the ranks of healthy listeners. But years of practice also reminds us that the rehabilitation of deaf children is a systematic project. Every successful child embodies the care of the government, the care of the society, the hard work of professionals, their own efforts and the sweat of their parents. The role of parents can not be replaced by anyone. In the face of children’s hearing problems, what kind of attitude parents hold and what kind of measures they take often determine their children’s recovery prospects.

Be brave and face no complaints

The hearing problem of children is a heavy blow to every parent and also a severe test. But parents have to respond seriously. In front of this question, parents can choose different answers, and each answer can reflect parents’ attitude towards their children. Some parents are overwhelmed by the difficulties in front of them, living in tears every day, and never recover; some parents choose to give up and meet their own needs with the way of having a new child; some choose to escape, and both husband and wife blame each other and even have marital accidents; more parents choose to face up bravely and actively find solutions to the problems. The common problem of the first three kinds of parents is that they do not shoulder the responsibility of being parents. Their behavior will seriously affect the future and development of their children, which is not desirable. The fourth kind of parents’ attitude is correct. They not only save their children, but also shoulder the responsibility to the country and society. They are the model for all parents of deaf children to learn.

Everyone wants their children to be healthy and happy, but hearing impairment is a problem that many people may encounter. In today’s highly developed science and technology, as long as early detection is achieved, early scientific rehabilitation measures can be taken to completely recover the hearing impairment or even leave no trace.

Believe in science and don’t take chances

Often encountered such parents of deaf children, the child has been more than two years old can’t speak, is not sensitive to the outside voice, can’t correctly implement the parents’ language instructions, many hospitals and rehabilitation institutions check that the child’s hearing has problems, but the parents just don’t believe it, always think the child is still small, and so on will be better. Other parents believe in the secular saying that “the noble speak late” and hope that a miracle will happen one day. It is undeniable that some children’s language development is later than two or three years old, but the biggest difference between these children and deaf children is that although they speak late, they can correctly understand the instructions of their parents, and the results of hearing tests in hospitals are normal. Modern medical technology has a lot of means to check hearing. The results are very accurate. If the regular medical and rehabilitation institutions have a clear diagnosis of children’s hearing, they should take rehabilitation measures as soon as possible. They should not take chances and delay the precious time of rehabilitation.

A considerable number of parents clearly know that their children have hearing impairment, and that there is no effective and direct cure, but these parents do not take active rehabilitation measures, but waste their time and energy on the unrealistic so-called “treatment”. In fact, there has been evidence for a long time that the so-called Qigong therapy for deafness is a fraud; acupuncture therapy has been denied as early as the end of the 1970s; there is no effective report on the treatment of deafness by nerve growth factor (NGP), which was once popular; the research on hair cell regeneration can only be realized in lower animals; stem cell transplantation and gene therapy for deafness Our research is expected to open up a way for the treatment of neuropathic deafness, but it is still in the primary stage of research, which is far from clinical application. There is no scientific basis for the so-called high-tech drugs for deafness appearing in some media and roadside advertisements. It can be said that there is no drug in the world to treat the deafness caused by the damage of inner ear hair cells, auditory nerve and auditory center, let alone the congenital deafness caused by the abnormal anatomical structure.

Emotionally, we can understand the behavior of these parents. They think that their children’s hearing impairment is their own fault and feel sorry for their children. Therefore, as long as they can hear and treat, no matter how much money they spend and how many grievances they suffer, they should try to achieve psychological balance. In fact, knowing that there is no result, we should insist on doing it, which not only stimulates the physical and mental health of children, but also wastes precious recovery time.

Don’t hesitate to fight against time

With the development of newborn hearing screening, many children’s hearing problems can be diagnosed within six months, but there are not many who can choose hearing aids for them during this period. In addition to the fact that some parents are busy walking around the medical rehabilitation institutions to check their children repeatedly or take some ineffective treatment, there are still some parents who don’t really pay attention to rehabilitation from the perspective of ideology and always feel that their children are still young and have time. As we all know, the rehabilitation of deaf children belongs to rescue work, and the effect of taking measures for rehabilitation as early as one day will be much greater. Because children’s speech development starts from birth (it is also proposed that it is in the embryonic stage) and generally has been completed before the age of 6. Beyond this stage, children’s speech learning will be much more difficult. So the rehabilitation time of deaf children is not much. If we find that deafness is later, there will be less chance for children to be older. Some parents worry that hearing aids will damage their children’s hearing when their children are too young, which is an unfounded idea. With the improvement of the digital level of hearing aids, their performance has changed from simple amplification to real-time recognition and processing of sound, to distinguish noise and speech sound, to know which needs to be amplified, which needs to be suppressed and which needs to be compressed. Therefore, as long as it is properly selected, it will not only not damage hearing, but also protect residual hearing.

Some children have severe hearing loss and need cochlear implant. Some parents don’t think it’s necessary to wear hearing aids before implantation, and it’s not too late for them to recover from hearing improvement after operation. In fact, parents with this idea don’t understand the essence of hearing and language rehabilitation. Hearing aids are necessary for deaf children before cochlear implantation. Understanding the voice before hearing is helpful not only for postoperative hearing adjustment but also for children’s auditory and cognitive learning function. Clinical practice has proved that deaf children who have received rehabilitation training with hearing aids before operation are much better than those who have not. The latest rehabilitation concept is that as long as the diagnosis of sensorineural deafness is confirmed, no matter how old the children are, they need to wear hearing aids immediately for rehabilitation training.

To understand the basic rehabilitation conditions of children

For the success of children, parents can bear the spiritual suffering that ordinary people can’t bear, and pay huge labor that ordinary people can’t imagine. Their eager expectation for children’s life care and study is really touching. But many parents know little about their children’s rehabilitation conditions. They unilaterally think that it’s a matter of professionals. They only need to manage their children’s lives well and put the responsibility of rehabilitation on others. This understanding is wrong and irresponsible. With the rapid development of rehabilitation technology, it is not enough for a competent parent of deaf children to care and love. They should also have a necessary understanding of their children’s natural conditions. Due to the influence of education background and education level, it is unrealistic for parents of deaf children to understand all the situations of their children like professionals, but they should understand the basic situations that have a significant relationship with their children’s rehabilitation, such as the hearing level of deaf children, the compensation effect of hearing aids, etc.

By recalling whether the mother was ill during pregnancy, whether she used drugs, whether she had the experience of protecting the fetus, whether the child had dystocia at birth, whether the child had high fever after birth, whether she had infectious diseases, whether she had used ototoxic drugs, whether there were members of the two families with congenital deafness, we can roughly understand the causes of the child’s deafness. Finding out the causes of deafness can help deaf children recover better. Deafness for different reasons has certain influence on rehabilitation. There are some hereditary deafness whose hearing will continue to decline, so we should leave some room when we choose hearing aids; there are also some hereditary deafness which have better high-frequency hearing, which is helpful to improve the language clarity; neonatal jaundice can lead to the occurrence of auditory neuropathy, which has a negative impact on speech training; older generation
