On the evening of the World Hearing Day (3rd of March), representatives of the Ministry of Health, along with experts from the field, joined to support a new approach in the prevention of hearing loss and other hearing impairments in children. Based on their recommendations,  a professional examination of the child’s auditory system by an ENT specialist will now be a part of the 5 year-old preventative examination. The child should be referred to the ENT specialist by their paediatrician during their preventative 5-year check-up, or ultimately, the parent may request an ENT appointment on behalf of their child. This eliminates the possible risk that the child won’t thrive at school, simply because they can’t understand their teacher.
