Sensingural hearing impairment
Currently, despite the measures taken to prevent hearing impairments, there is a clear trend towards an increase in the number of hearing impaired and deaf people who became ill at an early age. The probability of disability of such persons is very high since all available methods of treating such diseases in modern medicine are ineffective.
Most patients are recommended for hearing care and registration in a specialized garden (school). In the case of hearing aid, psychological factors and the presence of neurotic and somatoform disorders in which discomfort and improper choice of hearing aids are created are not taken into account.
Thus, statistics show that 1.2-1.4% of children in the European Union have hearing problems (one-third of them are minor hearing disorders, one-third are of medium severity and one-third are heavy).
In Ukraine, the proportion of disabled children with hearing disabilities in different regions of the country varies between 6-10% in the structure of the entire child’s disability!
The developed medical and psychosocial (psychotherapeutic, psychological) rehabilitation methods are a set of measures aimed at stabilizing and normalizing mental functions, mobilizing the reserve capabilities of the auditory analyzer, improving the acuity of hearing, attention, speech intelligibility and social adaptation in the micro- and macro- environment.
The technique is based on the use of exclusively physiological and compensatory capabilities of the organism, activation of the functioning of the inner ear and undamaged central sections of the auditory analyzer in conditions of exclusion of visual function.
The use of the technique does not require the use of medications or their administration is extremely limited by symptomatic therapy.
An important feature of the technique is that close relatives of the patient actively participate in all rehabilitation activities. This allows them to improve their psychological state in connection with a serious illness of a loved one, eliminate neurotic and somatoform (psychotic and nonpsychotic) disorders, provide a favorable moral and psychological climate in the family and, thereby, optimize the rehabilitation impact on the patient.
