					A person with hearing loss or hearing impairment has insecurities in life or even more
than that. A hearing impairment may start from infancy, childhood or it maybe caused
by any disease. Or maybe, it is also a result of any accident. Whatever be the cause, a
hearing impairment has a big effect to one's personality.

Imagine a child who has a hearing loss. If the impairment is partial, sometimes he
hears the voices of his playmates, sometimes he does not. It is because a certain
section of his ears does not function very well. This child may sometimes lose his
friends it is because he might not be understood by them. This will result to the child's
insecurities. This will probably lower his self esteem. He will also have a self pity.
The end result of this is the child will feel indifferent to his playmates. He will not
enjoy life as he expects. When this child goes to school, maybe he can not make it to a
regular class. Instead he will be enrolled to a school that caters those with impairment
like his. If you notice your child to have a hearing impairment you can bring him to
the doctor for a test. The doctor can evaluate the sensitivity of the sense of hearing of
a person. This is done by an audiologist using an audiometer. The doctor can
recommend the necessary medication or actions to be done after the series of tests.
The earlier the detection the better. The hearing impairment should not be a hindrance
to the child's bright future.
