HEARING DISORDERS AND DEAFNESS
It’s frustrating to be unable to hear well enough to enjoy talking with friends or family.
Hearing disorders make it hard, but not impossible, to hear. They can often be helped.
Deafness can keep you from hearing sound at all.
What causes hearing loss? Some possibilities are
- Diseases such as ear infections and meningitis
- Certain medicines
- Long-term exposure to loud noise
There are two main types of hearing loss. One happens when your inner ear or auditory
nerve is damaged. This type is usually permanent. The other kind happens when sound waves
cannot reach your inner ear. Earwax build-up, fluid, or a punctured eardrum can cause it.
Treatment or surgery can often reverse this kind of hearing loss.
Untreated, hearing problems can get worse. If you have trouble hearing, you can get help
from a professional audiologist in Goshen, NY 10924. Possible treatments include
hearing aids, cochlear implants, special training, certain medicines, and surgery.
VOICE AND COMMUNICATIONS DISORDERS
Many disorders can affect our ability to speak and communicate. They range from saying
sounds incorrectly to being completely unable to speak or understand speech. Causes
- Voice problems, such as dysphonia or those caused by cleft lip or palate
- Speech problems like stuttering
- Developmental disabilities
- Learning disorders
Some speech and communication problems may be genetic. Often, no one knows the causes. By
first grade, about 5 percent of children have noticeable speech disorders. Speech and
language therapy can help.
For your hearing health, voice disorder evaluation and treatment, be sure you are choosing
the right care. Goshen residents trust Goshen Speech and Hearing’s competent physician
oversight and caring personal attention.
