When kids have good hearing – it’s easy to listen and learn

Listening is really important for little kids. Listening helps kids connect with people and makes it easier for them to learn.

  • Kids learn language by listening to what other people say and talking to them. When kids can’t hear sounds, it’s harder for them to learn to talk.
  • Kids learn culture by listening to stories and talking to family. When kids can’t hear, it’s hard to learn about family and culture.
  • Little kids learn at preschool and school by talking and listening to the teacher and the other kids.

When kids can’t hear, it’s really hard to learn. Not learning when they are little lasts a lifetime. They will need more one-to-one help.
