Common Facts About Hearing Loss
09/14/2017

Thank you to Region 4 ESC for sharing common facts about hearing loss.

* Hearing loss is one of the most common disability conditions at birth.

*Three out of every 1,000 babies are born with permanent hearing loss.

*About 90% of hearing impaired children are born to hearing parents.

*Hearing loss is typically identified at 12-25 months, although 22 states have newborn hearing screenings available.

*Language and communication skills develop most rapidly before age 3.

*As many as 738,000 people in the US have severe to profound hearing loss.  Of these, almost 8% are under the age of 18.

*Approximately 14.9% of US children have low-frequency or high-frequency hearing loss of at least 16 dB hearing level in one or both ears.

*Profound, early-onset deafness is present in 4-11 per 10,000 children and is attributable to genetic causes in at least 50% of cases.
