Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the levels of depressive symptoms and the unique contribution of two aspects of emotion regulation coping and mood states to the development of depression in hearing-impaired children and a control group. Methods: In order to compare the groups, self-report questionnaires concerning symptoms of depression, coping strategies, and mood states were used. The study group consisted of 27 children with cochlear implants, 56 children with conventional hearing aids, and normally hearing children. Results: Hearing-impaired children reliably reported more symptoms of depression than their normally hearing peers.

Hearing Loss Treatment and Intervention Services
Objective: In Sweden, there has previously been no normalised test material for the evaluation of language development in individual hearing-impaired children, and for the assessment of various methods of auditory habilitation. The purpose of the present study was to compose, apply and evaluate a test for language development in hearing-impaired children, and to establish the first set of reference values related to age, sex, type and degree of hearing impairment. Methods: A test consisting of nine subtests was assembled and developed for, and subsequently applied to, hearing-impaired children in the age range years. The inclusion criteria were a pure tone average of 80 dBHL or less and oral language Swedish as the first language. Two hundred and eleven hearing-impaired children and 87 normal hearing control children were tested.
No single treatment or intervention is the answer for every child or family. Good intervention plans will include close monitoring, follow-ups and any changes needed along the way. There are many different options for children with hearing loss and their families. Early intervention program services help young children with hearing loss learn language skills and other important skills.
