If your child needs amplification, it is really important that this is worn for talking and singing with your child. Making sense of sound is something that happens in the brain and it is important that the brain gets clear, constant signals all the time, to be able to interpret and make sense of the information.

Enjoying singing with your child, or the rhythm of banging a drum or shaking a maraca, is beneficial for developing listening skills and will promote the development of early communication skills, language and speech. Ensuring that your child's amplification is working correctly and worn consistently, will help your child to gain maximum benefit from these musical interactions.
