Identification of Hearing Loss

You, as a parent, will be the first person to have your doubts regarding your child’s hearing ability. Perhaps he is not turning or reacting to loud sounds. Perhaps he is not speaking. Inspite of these signs, you would also be the person to deny hearing loss, looking instead for other reasons for the child’s behavior. THIS IS NATURAL!

It is important to go to professionals – an E.N.T Doctor- and come to a diagnosis of the problem. Hearing loss can be of different degrees. The greater the degree of hearing loss, the earlier it is detected by the family themselves. But, whatever the degree of hearing loss, the earlier you do something about it, the higher the chances of your child speaking like his hearing peers.
