Invisible Disability/ How Can You Survive with Hearing Impairment—The Infant and Child

  • Robert J. Ruben

Abstract

Hearing, for most children, allows for development of language. Language in turn provides the basis for communication, learning, and the socialization of the child. How does a parent impart their love, moral values, family history and all that goes into the development of the person unless they can communicate with their child? How does the child learn in the class, the playground, at home, unless there is a means of linguistic communication? The child who does not hear or only partially hears cannot tell what he or she has NOT heard.
