Help! My child can't hear
Many parents suspect early on that their baby can’t hear. When a newborn isn’t frightened by loud noises, or a 5 or 6 month-old baby doesn’t react to the sound of their own name, this may suggest that they have a hearing loss.
Older kids who can’t hear properly may turn up the volume on the TV or computer very high, or fail to respond when a parent speaks.
Don’t worry: it’s easy to correct your child’s poor hearing. And the earlier, the better.
