For a child, hearing and speech are essential tools of learning, playing and developing social skills. Children learn to communicate by imitating the sounds they hear.

My children’s hearing aids have affected their quality of life and their functionality so much! My daughter, who barely spoke at 2, took off with speech therapy and now has a magnificent vocabulary.

My son has now had his aid for several weeks, and we are seeing improvements in him that we didn’t even consider when we were in the process of getting his aid. It really does make a huge difference for them.
