I was just informed on friday that my youngest is hearing impared. He is 14 months and 12 months adjusted. He doesn't make sounds yet and when he went for his hearing screening they informed me that he failed. With my first I was given numbers but this time they wouldn't tell me what percent of his hearing he does have, we will see the doctor in 5 weeks and hopefully the report will be there then. I am not even sure at this point if there are options to help or not as they wouldn't tell me cause or really any information. He does hear something but very limited.

My other children I used to sign a little with but D doesn't seem interested in signing at all.

Really don't know where to start from here. I shouldn't feel so overwhelmed as my first was hearing impared and has had 4 surgerys hears almost fully now. I used to sign all the time but its been years and I didn't keep it up so I really don't remember it.

I am so sorry. I am sure you feel very overwelmed even if your oldest had some issues as well. Did they tell you anything other then hear impaired? i mean there is a big difference between not hearing whipsers, phone calls, someone talking straight to you, not being able to hear the tv ect??? I hope they can give you some answers or at least a start.

I use to sign as well (took it in college) and never taught my kids cuz I am a bad mom! lol but I would just start simple. He is 12/14 months old. Go to the book store or half price or even your library and get a baby sign book. Stop by the sign board here even! Start with like 5 or 6 words. milk, thank you, please, want, sleep something like that.

That is strange that they didn't tell you the percentage. I hope you get into the specialist soon so that you can get some answers.

I agree, it's very strange they didn't tell you the degree of hearing loss. There is a huge range! I hope you can get some answers too.

Well, if you're a bad mom, I'm the worst, because I am just now beginning to work on some signs with my deaf son

with my oldest they did tell me the range but it was an audiologist attached to a doctors office. This time it was part of an infant screening program and wouldn't release information. Just that both ears are affected.
