I do, sorta. My older daughter failed a test at twy yrs old, and she was diagnosed with auditory neuropathy. Took a test with better equipment a week later, and passed. She has no hearing problems now.
I used to live in a community with a lot of hearing impared people. I know this might be scary right now, and it still might be nothing, but those people I went to school with were all so amazing. They've also made so many technological advances. It's not likely your child will be signing the rest of her life if there actually is a problem. I'll be praying for a great follow up.
Side note, I have a lot of hearing damage myself. I might completely lose my left ear's hearing within the next few years. My dad's is also very damaged, but we're both musicians. It is a challange at times like when we try to hear people talk, but we live normal lives. Go to the movies and all that. We do like captions, though. Always have them turned on. We see it as a vocabulary builder. KUP
