Hearing loss is invisible because it is usually pain free and develops gradually over a long period of time. Because it is not visibly noticeable to those around you, it receives little attention. Have trouble understand what people are saying? Ever had ringing in your ears? Those can be symptoms of hearing loss. As stated, an undiagnosed hearing loss can lead to many different ramifications including (but not limited to) depression or social isolation. It is especially important because speech and language development is dependent upon a child's ability to hear their world.
