    What are the two types of hearing loss/deafness?

    • A.

      Congenital and genetic

    Correct Answer
    B. Congenital and aquired
    Explanation
    The correct answer is congenital and acquired. Congenital hearing loss refers to hearing loss that is present at birth, either due to genetic factors or prenatal conditions. Acquired hearing loss, on the other hand, is hearing loss that occurs after birth, often due to factors such as infections, noise exposure, or aging.

      Developed

    • D.

      Congenital

    Correct Answer
    D. Congenital
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "congenital." This is because when a baby is born deaf, it means that they have had the hearing loss since birth, indicating that it is a condition they were born with. Acquired hearing loss refers to a loss of hearing that occurs after birth, while genetic hearing loss is caused by inherited genetic factors. Developed hearing loss is not a recognized term in the context of this question.

  • 5. 

    Some useful learning devices for people with a hearing loss are all of the following except?

    • A.

      Sign language

      Computer asistive note taker

    • C.

      Braille

    • D.

      Text pager

    Correct Answer
    C. Braille
    Explanation
    Braille is not a useful learning device for people with a hearing loss because it is a system of raised dots that is used by individuals who are blind or visually impaired to read and write. It is not related to hearing loss and would not assist someone with hearing difficulties in any way. The other options, such as sign language, computer assistive note taker, and text pager, are all useful devices for individuals with hearing loss to communicate and access information.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Deaf or hard of hearing children start to develop language skills by communicating through drawings or writing. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Deaf or hard of hearing children may initially have difficulty developing spoken language skills, but they can still develop language skills through alternative means such as communicating through drawings or writing. This allows them to express their thoughts and ideas, and it also helps them to understand and comprehend language. Therefore, the statement that deaf or hard of hearing children start to develop language skills by communicating through drawings or writing is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Being patient and taking time to communicate with a person who has a hearing loss is an appropriate communication skill.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Being patient and taking time to communicate with a person who has a hearing loss is an appropriate communication skill because it shows respect and understanding towards the individual's condition. By being patient, one allows the person with hearing loss to process information at their own pace and ensures effective communication. Taking time to communicate also involves using clear and concise language, facing the person directly, and using visual aids if necessary. These practices help bridge the communication gap and make the person with hearing loss feel included and valued in conversations.

      TV shows

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Good resources to use with children who have a hearing problem include children books, parent advice books, and internet resources.

TV shows primarily rely on auditory information, which may not be accessible or beneficial for children with hearing impairments. Therefore, TV shows are not considered an ideal resource for children with hearing problems.

    The most common hearing loss cause in children is otitis?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The most common cause of hearing loss in children is otitis, which refers to inflammation or infection of the middle ear. Otitis can occur due to various reasons such as allergies, colds, or bacterial infections. The inflammation and fluid buildup in the middle ear can affect the transmission of sound to the inner ear, leading to temporary or permanent hearing loss. It is important to diagnose and treat otitis in children promptly to prevent any long-term hearing impairments.

  • 10. 

    Deaf/hard of hearing children start to develop finger, but this should NOT be encouraged as a tool for proper language development? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Encouraging finger development in deaf/hard of hearing children is important for their proper language development. This is because sign language, which involves the use of fingers, is a visual-spatial language that allows these children to communicate effectively. By developing finger skills, they can express themselves and understand others more easily. Therefore, the statement that finger development should not be encouraged for proper language development is false.

It can be caused by various factors such as exposure to loud noise, ear infections, or age-related hearing loss. Tendinitis, arthritis, and gingivitis are all unrelated conditions and do not involve ringing in the ears.

    The hearing loss that happens at between the age of 30-50 in adults is? 

    • A.

      Otitis

    • B.

      Acoustic nueroma

    • D.

      Meniere's

    Correct Answer
    D. Meniere's
    Explanation
    Meniere's disease is a condition that causes hearing loss, typically occurring between the ages of 30-50 in adults. It is characterized by episodes of vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and a feeling of fullness or pressure in the affected ear. This condition is believed to be caused by an abnormal buildup of fluid in the inner ear, leading to damage of the delicate structures responsible for hearing and balance.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    The          is caused by a tumor that causes loss of hearing? 

    • A.

      Meneire's

    • B.

      Acoustic neuroma

    • C.

      Tendenitis

    • D.

      Tinnitus

    Correct Answer
    B. Acoustic neuroma
    Explanation
    Acoustic neuroma is a correct answer because it is a tumor that can cause hearing loss. Acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous growth that develops on the nerve responsible for balance and hearing. As the tumor grows, it can press against the surrounding structures, including the hearing nerve, leading to hearing loss. Other symptoms of acoustic neuroma may include tinnitus (ringing in the ears), dizziness, and imbalance. Therefore, acoustic neuroma is a likely cause of hearing loss in this scenario.

  • 14. 

    Hearing loss in children may cause a delay in language skills?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hearing loss in children can indeed cause a delay in language skills. When children have difficulty hearing, they may struggle to understand and process spoken language, leading to delays in their ability to develop language skills. This can impact their ability to communicate effectively and may require intervention such as speech therapy or the use of hearing aids or cochlear implants to help improve their language development. Therefore, the statement "Hearing loss in children may cause a delay in language skills" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    It is NOT helpful to teach family members or classmates of a child who is deaf or has hearing loss any sign language?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Teaching family members or classmates of a child who is deaf or has hearing loss sign language can be very helpful. Sign language allows for effective communication and inclusion for the child with hearing loss. It enables them to interact and connect with their loved ones and peers, promoting their social and emotional development. Additionally, it can also facilitate their learning and academic progress by ensuring that they have access to information and education in a way that suits their needs.
