Hearing Loss and Skeletal Dysplasia

Session Description: Skeletal Dysplasia and Hearing Loss: There is not a great deal of data on the prevalence of hearing loss in persons with skeletal dysplasia, and less on the use of amplification (e.g., hearing aids and cochlear implants). This presentation will focus on data collected from adults and parents/guardians of children with skeletal dysplasia. It will explore the relationship between different types of skeletal dysplasia, hearing loss and use of amplification.
