Hard of Hearing and Deaf


A few common physical symptoms of hearing loss in children are re occurring ear infections, or constantly rubbing their ears. This is a feature an adult can identify that may escape individual’s observations. A student may appear to hear but not understand the information presented or said. As well increasing the volume on the television, when people around may find it noisy. These students will also lip read and you may find them staring at your mouth instead of making eye contact. When speaking the student may turn their head to where you are standing and speaking, to focus on what you are saying. Students may be frustrated as difficulty expressing their thoughts and environmental noises.
