my name is nicole and i found out the other day that my dd has to go for a hearing test. my doctor thinks she has a hearing impairment, she is almost 3 years old. he thinks that because she might have a hearing impairment thats why she is not talking. you call her name and she does not even act like your talking to her but when she is facing you and you call her name she shows that you called her (if you know what i mean). i am worried about her and have been for some time. my mom is the one that told me to get her hearing checked as my bother has a hearing impairment and has hearing aids and i am boarder line def in my left ear, so out of everyone i think she know what she is talking about lol. how do they do a hearing test on a small child. i know when they did mine i was around 6-8 years of age and they put me in a sound proof room and did different pitches of sound. can someone help me and if she does have a little bit of hearing impairment what will they do ???????????????????
i am just so stressed out. i have been dealing with my sons problems and all his doctors appointment then she goes for a check up and now i have to do things for her (happy we are done with her bothers appointments ) but i thought ok now we can just enjoy things no more running around. but i am happy that they are looking into things.
so can you guys give me info about how they do a hearing test and what will happen if she does have a hearing impairment
Alina never cood..... never talked... so we went to the ENT. When Alina had her first hearing test, she and I went into the sound proof room together and she sat on my lap... she was not even 2 yet at the time. They had different things that mad noise, in various places, and would set them off and watch for her to react. sometime she would turn to the noise, while other times she didnt. The times that she did, I think it was because she noticed the objects visually.
They also did a test to determine the movement of the eardrum.... It determines whether the eardrum can vibrate or if there is to much fluid..... Alina`s test showed little to no movement in both ears. So, she got tubes in her ears. She talks sooooooooooooo much now!!! I am so glad we had her checked!
