Next phase: Schoolchild (6-12)
As children with hearing loss grow, they face a range of challenges at different stages of their lives, from infancy through the school years and beyond. Children learn and progress differently over time and the needs of your child must be assessed continuously. Every new concept of and skill set results in new behaviour. Look out for the signs, so that you can provide support!
When children start school, a time of exciting adventures begins. However, for all children, school is a place that requires a lot of effort on their part as they try to hear, understand and act on what is said in the classroom. Prepare yourself for a new, fantastic and challenging phase in your child’s life.
