MICROTIE [4 records]

Record 1 2016-01-15

English

Subject field(s)
  • The Ear
  • Hearing
CONT

Children with unilateral microtia usually have normal hearing in their other ear, although this must be confirmed with hearing tests at a young age. Having normal hearing in only one ear will not usually cause any speech and language delay, and there are strategies to make the most of the child's hearing while at school, for instance.

Record 2 2016-01-15

English

Subject field(s)
  • The Ear
  • Hearing
CONT

In bilateral cases, children are at risk of greater hearing loss, which can lead to poor speech development. Children with bilateral microtia require earlier intervention [and] often use bone-conducting hearing aids before undergoing surgical treatment.

Domaine(s)
  • Oreille
  • Ouïe
CONT

Quand la microtie atteint les deux côtés, le développement de la parole et l'apprentissage de la langue peuvent être affectés. Si votre enfant souffre d’une microtie bilatérale avec perte d’audition des deux côtés, il est important d’améliorer son audition, avec une prothèse auditive à conduction osseuse, le plus tôt possible.
