Children hearing problems

Symptoms of possible hearing loss in infants and toddlers

Last week, I posted about WHEN you should bring your pre-school child for a hearing assessment (see previous post). So what about Infants?

Let’s assume that your child has received and passed her/his neonatal hearing screening in hospital. (If your child has not undergone such a hearing screening, it is recommended that you schedule a thorough hearing evaluation).

What did you say, Mommy? (Pre-school children)

In the past two weeks I’ve seen quite a few concerned parents that brought their children for a hearing assessment due to different factors.

Parents, grandparents or teachers are almost always the first to suspect that a child might suffer from hearing loss. In most of these cases, the culprit might only be excessive earwax or middle-ear infections.
