Are skeleton earmolds ok for kids?
I feel very passionate that young children and babies should not be fit with open fit/receiver in the ear/receiver in the canal hearing aids without any kind of custom earmold. Are skeleton style earmolds ok for kids? Yes! The most common style of earmolds kids are fit with are full shell earmolds. With kids the most important part of a hearing aid is clear and consistent sound quality.

What’s the difference between hearing aids and cochlear implants? An Analogy

What is Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder?
I’m so excited for scientific research to crack the code and be able to pinpoint the site of lesion for Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD). We’re getting closer and starting to realize that certain genetic forms of ANSD are likely not going to resolve/improve (ANSD improves in a very very very very small % of patients). Between that and an MRI to determine if there is a thin or absent nerve we can give slightly better guidance about the plan of action. Beyond that there can be a lot of gray area and questions marks. Starting early intervention right away is going to be the best thing you can do!…
