Event Description: The library is offering free hearing tests and help with research during National Disability Awareness Month. Each year, many children suffer from undetected temporary and permanent hearing loss. The consequences of having a hearing loss include speech and language delays, lower academic achievement, emotional distress, frustration, fatigue because they are unable to hear clearly. The good news is that the negative effects of hearing loss can be reduced and minimized with early detection and early intervention. Doctor of Audiology students and faculty at Northern Illinois University are conducting a research study to examine and compare the hearing status of children in the United States and in several countries in Asia and South America. They will be offering free hearing tests to children age 0-18 at the library. Accompanying family members are also welcome. All tests are non-invasive and they follow standard hearing procedures offered in hearing clinics around the world. Drop by anytime during the program. Your participation in the research study is voluntary. These tests are entirely FREE and require no registration. For more information, please click here or contact Dr. King Chung at kchung@niu.edu.
