Description

'Early detection of hearing impairment' discusses early diagnosis, fitting of hearing aids, and how enrollment in early intervention programs can improve developmental outcomes. Unfortunately, the mean age of diagnosis is two years of age in many western countries, including Australia.

Reading to infants and young children can help to ameliorate the high rates of adult illiteracy. Most non-readers do have the ability to learn to read when properly taught.

Scalp scaling in children can happen because of five different reasons: seborrhoeic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, tinea, and a group of rare disorders that mimic those conditions.
