Rajan Speech & Hearing Centre mandates early diagnosis in children to treat deafness

Rajan Speech & Hearing Centre (RSHC) is now on an aggressive drive
to test children for early deafness. Since hearing loss is a hidden
disability, the Institute is keen to test the baby early because
the first year of life is critical to the development of normal speech
and language. Annually India reports over 4,000 babies born with
hearing loss. Most babies born with hearing problems are otherwise
healthy and have no family history of hearing loss. To ensure that the
baby has normal hearing, it would be vital to test as early as possible,
stated Krishna Kumar, audiologist and director, RSHC.
