Did you know?

  • 4 in 100,000 births have usher syndrome
  • As many as 30 million people may be carriers of usher genes
  • Usher syndrome represents one of the major cause of syndromic deafness with blindness


    Recent advancements in genetics have helped to identify congenital hearing disorders and to develop new screening methods. These advancements have lead to improved genetic counseling and early diagnosis of hearing disorders, leading to early interventions that can prevent delays in speech, language and learning.
