Abstract

Purpose: This research forum article introduces the special session on “Intervention and Outcomes of Children with Hearing Loss” presented at the HEaring Across the Lifespan (HEAL) Conference in 2014. Method: The method involved a narrative summary of the key findings of two papers presented during the session. Results: Early intervention was effective in improving outcomes of children with significant bilateral hearing loss. Preliminary findings on children with mild or unilateral hearing loss showed communicative development on par with their normal-hearing peers. Conclusion: Children with bilateral hearing loss benefited from early detection and intervention.
