After the beautiful summer we have had, it is now time to think about the start of the school year which is fast approaching, but also to think about the ability to learn at any age. Ask yourself, what have you learned recently? A new language, a new sport, a new recipe? In order to properly assimilate new information, it is essential to be able to hear well. Hearing is an essential part of neurocognitive functions that allow us to communicate, understand our environment, orient ourselves and locate the source of sounds.

Children learn a great deal by imitation and repetition. For example, by repeating mommy or daddy to an infant, these will be the first words the baby will say. If the infant cannot hear, he will not speak.

Later in school, if the child cannot clearly hear the teacher’s voice and instructions, he may experience learning delays. If this is the case, it is essential to see your doctor for a hearing assessment. To facilitate concentration and maximize learning, it is strongly recommended to have a calm and quiet environment in the classroom.

Young children learn to assert themselves at school and develop their social and communication skills. They interact with new friends from various backgrounds and languages ​​that are sometimes different from their own, hence the importance of hearing well to help them form new friendships.

School years are filled with learning of all sorts and are the foundation of life. Thereafter, we constantly continue to grow and learn as adults: whether at work, play, travel, reading, technology...we grow and learn throughout our lives.

Over the years, living with untreated hearing loss limits and decreases the chances of maintaining the development over time of new knowledge and the satisfaction we derive from it. Nothing is more pleasant than enjoying the benefits of our new experiences and communicating them with those close to us.

While there is yet to be a miraculous recipe for everlasting youth, one thing is certain: acquiring new knowledge throughout our lives helps keep our brains active, stimulated, keeps us healthy and young at heart.

It is scientifically proven that hearing loss can significantly increase the risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer's. In other words, taking care of your hearing means putting the odds in your favor, allowing you to age gracefully.

After undergoing a simple hearing screening, you will be able to discuss with a hearing aid professional, so that they can clearly assess your needs and identify your habits and lifestyle. They will then be able to offer you personalized and complete solutions.

You can rediscover the joy of hearing and continue to learn!
