Getting used to hearing aids
Using hearing aids should be a positive experience for your child. Give your child a chance to slowly get used to hearing the new sounds. For the first few weeks it is a good idea if your child uses the hearing aids in peaceful surroundings, such as the home. Later on, the child may begin to use the hearing aids in other environments, such as kindergarten or school.
A new routine
It may be a good idea to draw up a plan for the regular use of the hearing aids. This can be difficult, but it is best to keep trying every day. Ideally, the use of hearing aids should become part of the daily routine for you and your child, just like brushing teeth and getting dressed.
Your role as parent
To ensure that using hearing aids is a positive experience for your child, it is important that, as a parent, you display a patient and positive attitude.
