Management of the child with sensorineural hearing loss. Medical, surgical, hearing aids, cochlear implants.

Optimal comprehensive management of a child with SNHL involves constructive dialogue and coordination with the child's family and teachers. Not all children with SNHL benefit from conventional amplification, even after parents have invested significant amounts of money in hearing aids. Parents may encounter frustration and disappointment if their children fail to achieve communicative and academic goals they have established in their own mind. If the child is a potential candidate for cochlear implantation, this decision not only involves the risks (albeit modest) of surgery but also often a substantial financial commitment to help defray the cost of this sophisticated electronic device. The parents may encounter conflicting advice from friends and members of the adult deaf community about the benefit of cochlear implantation. Throughout the course of all of these difficult considerations, the health professionals caring for a child with hearing loss should be a source for information, guidance, and support to the family.
