#HearTheWorld

Every year, around 665,000 children around the world are born with significant hearing loss.

A child’s ability to hear and speak is vital for emotional and social development. If an infant's brain does not receive adequate acoustic stimuli because of an undetected hearing loss, the development of age appropriate speech and language can be delayed making it difficult to close the gap. Therefore, it is crucial to detect and manage hearing loss as early as possible!

We're joining Hear the World Foundation for a Twitter party to spread awareness of how to detect, treat and prevent hearing loss in young children. Ask questions and hear straight from expert Audiologist, Dr. William Dickinson, an as he tweets from @Hear_The_World about protecting children's hearing and treating hearing loss. 

Prizes! We have five $25 Amazon gift cards to give away to randomly selected participants (U.S. only) who answer the trivia questions correctly.
