Abstract

This study was initiated to examine the outcome of moderate to severe sensorineurally hearing impaired children who are cared for in a municipal hospital clinic. The initial stimulus was the awareness that many of these children had very poor speech and extremely poor language despite measurable hearing at all frequencies. A retrospective study of all the children seen in the clinic was conducted to give information as to why these children had poor speech and language skills. It was found that almost all of the children of this group had severe speech and language delay and that our findings were congruent with other studies of moderate to severely hearing impaired children.3'13 The possible reason for the poor results are examined. The findings of this and other studies emphasize the potential for serious morbidity found in this population and the need for efficacious intervention.
