With hearing loss, there is a problem in the development of hearing and speech, since there are no auditory signals from the corresponding brain centers. For people with hearing loss, it is very important to get early language skills, early diagnosis and treatment of the cause. In auditory rehabilitation, it is vital that auditory signals are received by the brain, interpreted and learned from these signals for the development of speech in the early period.
