Hearing, Speech, and Language

Speech, language, and hearing are an important part of a healthy child's life. Speech means the ability to make sounds, while language goes beyond this and refers to the ability to understand and use the sounds. Hearing is necessary for the proper development of speech and language.

There are many conditions that affect hearing that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed in the directory below are some of the conditions, for which we have provided a brief overview.

If you cannot find the condition in which you are interested, please visit the Ear, Nose, and Throat Online Resources page in this Web site for an Internet/World Wide Web address that may contain additional information on that topic.
