DOCUMENT TEXT

Short description  In France, hearing impairment affects almost eight hundred newborn infants every year. This has consequences on the child’s language acquisition and affects his/her intellectual, socioaffective and professional development. Neonatal hearing impairment is severe or profound in 25% cases and around 75% of hearing disabilities in children are due to genetic defects. Public authorities are particularly attentive to any emergent research that might have an impact on the management of this public health problem.
Recent data in fundamental, clinic and applied research contribute to the understanding of diverse hearing impairments and to the improvement of their management.

Short description in the original language  En France, la surdité touche chaque année près de 800 nouveau-nés. Elle a des conséquences sur l’acquisition du langage de l’enfant et affecte son développement intellectuel, professionnel et socio-affectif. Les surdités sévères ou profondes représentent environ un quart des surdités présentes à la naissance et environ trois quarts des enfants sourds ont une surdité d’origine génétique. Les pouvoirs publics sont particulièrement attentifs aux recherches émergentes qui peuvent avoir un impact sur la prise en charge de ce problème de santé publique.
Les avancées de la recherche fondamentale, clinique et appliquée contribuent à la compréhension des divers déficits auditifs et à l’amélioration de leur prise en charge.
