Hearing, one of the most vital senses, is essential for preserving interpersonal relationships and connections. Hearing loss is a condition in which the ear does not function properly. Depending on one’s age or stage of life, a lot of circumstances can influence one’s hearing. Children who are deaf or hard of hearing have difficulty succeeding in school. They can interact with society since they have a face. Due to reduced class size and a lack of technological teaching aids, teachers face obstacles in the classroom. Due to the lack of professional training and similar lip movement, while teaching children, they have been struggled. The major issue for parents of children with hearing impairment is to embrace their child’s abilities and provide adequate assistance. They also worried about their children’s education and prospects. Provision of the appropriate remedies for overcoming their challenges will help every individual to succeed in their life.
