September 8, 2017

Language outcomes in children with permanent childhood hearing loss are mitigated through the use of early intervention strategies such as early amplification and cochlear implantation once a diagnosis has been made.

C. Ching, PhD, from the HEARing Cooperative Research Centre and National Acoustic Laboratories, Australia, and colleagues wrote.
