What Makes Us Different

  • Early Treatment for Hearing Impairment Pays Off

    Olivia LaRosa was born with hearing impairment. From the moment she began making babbling sounds, her parents brought her to Cincinnati Children's for treatment. Early interventions with hearing aids and speech therapy worked. Her case is an example of why the state passed a law to screen every baby's hearing, something that was not routine 18 years ago. Today, more families benefit from early detection of hearing loss. And more people are following the LaRosas' lead of being diligent in following through with treatment that can change the outcome.
