Sometimes, young children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) have additional developmental needs, such as vision impairment or motor or balance challenges.
There are several services from other professionals that your child may need.
Sometimes the cause of hearing loss is also the cause of motor or balance problems.
Vision problems are more common in children who are DHH than in the general population.
Remember, your family-infant teacher or service coordinator will be able to help you get in touch with the other members of your team. It is a good idea to keep a list of school district members, audiologists and doctors with their phone members and e-mail addresses.
