The following information has been prepared to help you monitor behavioural responses of your child’s hearing ability. The checklist indicates behaviours that are age appropriate for the detection of hearing loss.
In addition, a list of what you can do to help your child learn to speak and to use his/her hearing is also included.
If your child fails to respond as the checklist suggests, there may be problems that require further evaluation. You may wish to discuss this with you pediatrician, who will then refer you to an ENT (ear, nose and throat) Specialist, as well as an Audiologist for further investigation.
Consult your pediatrician for further audiological evaluation by an ENT Specialist and Audiologist should you have any concerns with regards to your child’s hearing ability.
