Hearing aids for children


I’m looking for a bit of help and advice. Does anyone have any information on getting hearing aids for a 3 year old?

What style of aid works best? Are there any particular manufacturer or brands that are better?

How often will ear moulds have to be changed? Will kids have to have their moulds changed often until their ears stop growing? There seems to be a myth about how long our ears grow for and lots of people say that they never stop, but they stop growing when we’re about 18 or so, right?

Here in the UK, I know of several vendors who will not supply hearing aids to anyone under the age of 16 – where did you get kids’ aids from?

Lots of questions! Thanks to anyone who leaves a comment.
