How Do I Know if My Child Has a Hearing Loss?
It may be difficult to identify hearing problems in your child due to the fact that they may not be able to describe the symptoms at a young age. It’s important to be observant and take note of actions you may notice that could be an indication of hearing loss. Keep in mind that these signs may change as your child ages. Signs to look out for include:
- Excessive volume on TV
- Responding inappropriately to questions
- Not responding when called
- Watching others to imitate what they’re doing
- Constantly complaining of earaches or noises in their head
- Speaking differently than other children his/her age
If you suspect your child has a hearing loss, it’s important to take them to professionals who will determine the proper form of evaluation and treatment.
