How to Help Your Hearing-Impaired Kid Feel More Confident!

When my sister was little, she was ashamed of her hearing aids. She always hid them behind her hair. Even now as an adult, she carries the stigma associated with her hearing loss. Consistent use of hearing aids is critical for kids':

  • speech
  • language 
  • learning

Kids sometimes feel embarrassed wearing hearing aids, but today there are options to help! Hearing aids and ear molds come in a variety of colors. For boys, check out MyLugs (in UK), or for girls, designer hearing aid jewelry from HearingWithStyle!
