Research indicates that children with hearing impairment may have vestibular loss as well. This may be indicated by the following:
- children who exhibit hearing and vestibular loss may learn to walk later.
- bike riding, and other balance related gross motor skills may be difficult to learn.
- reading acuity may be impaired.
It also important to keep in mind that cochlear implant failure may be directly related to vestibular loss.
