Insight: (Why is this important?)
With current technology providing high-powered hearing aids and cochlear devices, 85-90% of students with hearing impairments have the ability to detect the full range of English sounds through auditory alone. However, intervention is essential for them to optimally develop the auditory channel and thus learn to comprehend language through listening.
