Born Deaf…Then Hearing – Ablout: deafness

Born Deaf…Then Hearing.

From Jamie Berke

An Israeli audiologist has discovered that a condition called “temporary deafness” does exist in newborns. According to the article, he was testing children prior to their receiving cochlear implants, and found that some of them were already beginning to hear sound. According to the audiologist: “A child whose deafness is caused by a malfunctioning connection between hair cells and the auditory nerve should not have a cochlear implant in the first 17 months of life. Research results show the possibility that at least some of these children undergo the procedure for nothing.”
