Deaf-mutism is generally due to a loss of hearing before the age of 2 - 3 years which hinders learning to speak. Most cases result from acute infectious diseases such as measles, epidemic meningitis, encephalitis, typhoid, otitis media, toxic effects of drugs, etc. Congenital deaf-mutism is also a possible etiology.

After regaining hearing the next problem is the speech. In such cases the child should be made to consolidate the hearing and to read aloud for at least an hour a day.
