My son who is already in ei for a motor delay and who has a medical history including hydrocephalus. Today he tested to have a high frequency hearing loss in the moderate range. This was established thus far with behavioral testing. I have a number of questions ( please forgive the formatting I do not have a standard computer).
1) Our next step is a sedated ABR. Do you have experience with this? What is it like? How accurate is it?
2) I have been pushing ei for speech but they have been saying he is too young (16 months) how might I better advocate to get speech therapy? Might their opinion change given the hearing loss?
3) Should I put away toys I worry are too loud to protect his hearing (like the fisher price lil zooms car ramp)?
4) Does anyone have experience with this type of hearing loss did they use hearing aides to amplify sound.
I'm sorry if this is not well composed or thought out, this is new. I realize I should have spoken more with audiology but the appointment was so quick. Thank you!
