A good start in life
The earlier the child receives hearing aids, the better. With today’s technology it is possible to be fitted with hearing aids within the first weeks or months after birth. Oticon hearing aids with BrainHearing technology help children to make sense of the world around them.
The hearing aids amplify the speech signal as close to the original as possible and provide the child’s brain with as much relevant sound as possible in order to link sound to meaning. Although hearing loss happens in the ears, the real effect is in the brain. It is the brain that makes sense of sound, so the brain must be stimulated to develop.
Hearing aids with BrainHearing™ technology - supporting your child's learning:
• Ensures your child has clearer and more consistent amplification
• Provides your child access to more of the important details in speech sounds to better support language development
• Supports your child’s brain in making sense of sound in order to get the most out of their hearing
Parents should ensure the child is receiving sound, not by asking, but by knowing. Oticon’s hearing aids for children have LED lights signalling that the hearing aid's battery is working properly.

Remember: It is important that your child wears the hearing aids all day long – which can be difficult as the child becomes more self-reliant and may try to take off their hearing aids, or lose them while playing. Talk to your hearing care professional about getting an Oticon Safe-Line retainer or other measures to keep the hearing aids on your child.
