Treatment For Deaf And Speech Impaired Patients?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, my brother used to cry when he was born, but when he grew up he found out that he was deaf and speechless, what was the cause huh?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of someone who cannot hear or is deaf, and cannot speak or is deaf, can occur due to a variety of possibilities, regardless of whether at birth crying or not. Among others are:
Infection in his mother when he was still in the womb
Radiation exposure to the mother
Mothers consume certain drugs that are dangerous for pregnancy
Genetic disorders in the fetus
Abnormalities in growth of auditory structures, such as the auditory bone
The flow of oxygen and blood is not smooth while still in the womb
And there are still many reasons, where the most frequent is infection, especially by a group of diseases called TORCH. In addition to making a child have a hearing loss, this infection can also make a child blind, born prematurely, or even die in the womb. That is why TORCH examination is one of the routine examinations performed on mothers who plan to become pregnant.
Our advice, if you still want to have your sibling checked, check with the ENT doctor to see where exactly the origin of the disorder is and the possible cause. The ENT doctor will ask further questions about his pregnancy history first, and his medical history and development early in his life. Investigations will also be carried out to make possible contingencies. Handling will be determined based on this inspection.
Meanwhile, there is nothing that can be done independently other than helping him to adapt, namely by learning and teaching sign language, and accompanying him to travel. So, hopefully answering your question.
