Childhood deafness in developing countries
We use the term ‘deaf’ to refer to all types of hearing loss, from mild to profound. This includes deafness in one ear or temporary hearing loss such as glue ear. If you're concerned about your child's hearing, we have information and resources about causes of deafness and different types of hearing loss and deafness.
