Infant period (0-3 years old) is the key period of human language development. For children with hearing loss, early hearing intervention in this period can establish the foundation for their future comprehensive speech rehabilitation and development. The principle of children’s choice of hearing aids can be simply summed up as “three early”, that is, early diagnosis, early intervention (using hearing aids) and early rehabilitation (language training) should be carried out based on the help of hearing aids as soon as possible. Once the recovery period is missed, children have great difficulty in mastering language.

In the process of selecting hearing aids for children, the performance requirements of hearing aids are usually higher. Children’s language learning is actually a process of imitating speech. Only when they hear clear and complete speech signals can they correctly pronounce and correct the wrong pronunciation. Therefore, the higher the clarity and comfort of the hearing aid, the clearer and complete the sound the child hears, and the greater the listening help the child can get. In order to develop the ability of language expression, feel all kinds of sounds of nature, and integrate into the collective of normal children, it is generally recommended to select all digital hearing aids of medium and low grade or above in order to obtain satisfactory rehabilitation effect.

In addition, binaural hearing aid is very important for hearing loss children. It is a key means to further shorten the period of hearing rehabilitation and improve the effect of hearing aid. Especially for the children who are in the rapid growth period, the processing ability of brain and auditory nerve to sound signal is also gradually developed. Wearing hearing aids on both ears can make children hear more comfortable and clear, the sound is natural, establish the connection between the two sides of brain and auditory nerve to sound faster, feel the three-dimensional and spatial sense of sound, and establish the auditory memory function more easily To better the effect of hearing rehabilitation.

It should be noted that children of different ages have different listening needs and corresponding hearing aids have different performance.

At the age of 0-3, you have not mastered the language. First, you need to be able to sense different loudness and kinds of sounds, then recognize the meaning of different sounds, and then imitate the language to learn to speak. Therefore, the segmented compression function of hearing aids must meet the listening comfort of different loudness sounds, and the full digital hearing aids above the middle level can provide better speech clarity, help children improve their listening ability faster, learn pronunciation and accumulate vocabulary.

Compared with 0-3-year-old children, 3-6-year-old children have mastered some languages. What they need more is to correct their pronunciation and make their speech clear. At this stage, hearing-impaired children generally need to go to language training schools or kindergartens to learn. The content of listening is increasing, and the listening environment is becoming more complex. They need to be able to distinguish speech in a relatively noisy environment. Therefore, the full digital noise reduction function of hearing aids and the directional function of environmental recognition can help them to listen to speech and master more vocabulary and sentences in complex environment.

The hearing-impaired children over 6 years old will generally enter the normal primary school after the rehabilitation of the previous two stages of language training. They need to integrate into the group of normal children to learn and develop their language expression ability. At this time, listening needs become more complex. They need to learn foreign languages, participate in collective activities, and develop the ability to communicate with the outside world, so they need higher performance requirements for hearing aids. Generally, it is recommended that hearing aids be used together with FM speech training system to ensure the signal-to-noise ratio of noisy environment, and relatively beautiful and invisible hearing aids can be selected.
