Identification of hearing loss and cochlear implantation are occurring before any concerns about ASD arise, necessitating the need for audiologists and early interventionists to become knowledgeable about the behavioral symptomatology associated with this dual diagnosis. Learn about atypical development in children with hearing impairments who are suspected of having ASD.
