About the Club
Hearing plays an important role in the development of speech and communication skills in children. Undiagnosed hearing loss in childhood interferes with normal social, emotional, and cognitive development. Unfortunately, there is no universal hearing-screening program for children in elementary schools and hearing impairments can often go undetected. With this study, we plan to use a newly-developed hearing game on an iPad to test the hearing of elementary school children in Montreal. This will provide an updated prevalence of hearing loss in Montreal school-aged children.
