In brief: Absolutely!
Imagine not understanding or comprehending the world around you and everyone expecting you to understand.
Kids become frustrated and may act out. Children who are affected by hearing loss need great support and a team of people that will help them untangle the gibberish they hear. Ent, otologists, speech therapists etc.
