It has long been thought that noise-induced hearing loss is a problem for adults, not children. Research by United States Centres for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that over 12 per cent of American children aged between 6 and 19 years have hearing loss created by sound, and that the loss is permanent for around five per cent of them. Some of the conditions and occasions that might cause long-term hearing loss in children include: genetic conditions that cause the internal ear to develop extraordinarily; some hereditary disorders, such as osteogenesis imperfecta and trisomy 13; exposure of the unborn baby to disease, rubella is among the diseases that can influence the developing ears of the fetus; loud sounds, such as firecrackers, rock performances or personal stereos; injuries, such as concussion or skull crack; specific diseases, such as meningitis and mumps.
