Babies and children are highly susceptible to temporary or fluctuating hearing loss. A hearing loss during this time may have a significant impact on a child's developing language and social skills. The skills established in preschool years are the foundation for future learning at school
Current research suggests early diagnosis of a hearing loss and appropriate intervention will encourage best outcomes.

Did you know that birds, or at least some of the species we have studied, have quite a lot in common with humans?
Both birds and humans can learn how to use their voice, and sometimes even mimic other species – the best proof that vocalization is a learned behaviour.

When you are first fitted with hearing aids, many environmental sounds can seem louder than they should be. However, with regular use, your brain will automatically learn to tune out less important sounds and feel comfortable with the amplification you need to hear speech effectively.
A hearing loss almost always results in a reduced ability to understand speech in competing noise. While hearing aids can’t restore this ability, contemporary hearing aids will help you communicate in a noisy environment. They can selectively zoom towards the strongest voice in front or to the side of you, as well as restrict amplification of noises behind you.
We provide the support you need to feel comfortable with your hearing aids, and ensure you obtain optimal benefit by carrying out personalised fine-tuning of your hearing aid settings.

“If you're like most people, you probably can't stand the sound of fingernails scraping across a blackboard. You're probably cringing just thinking about it. This ear-piercing noise is so universally disliked, perhaps it's no surprise that dozens of scientists have researched why it evokes such a visceral reaction.”

A new analysis by The Wirecutter suggests many brands of children’s headphones do not restrict volume to the promised limit, and sometimes produce sound which can be hazardous to ears in mere minutes.
These headphones are not offering adequate protection for a child’s hearing, and can sometimes cause permanent damage.
With children of all ages wearing headphones nowadays, it is important to ensure your child’s hearing is being protected. You can find out more here:

Acoustic shock (AS) is an involuntary trauma reaction, which can occur following exposure to a sudden unexpected loud sound, causing a specific and consistent pattern of neurophysiological and psychological symptoms.
Acoustic Shock can develop in people who work in call centres, following the exposure to a sudden, unexpected, loud noise transmitted via the telephone line.\
