Welcome to the board!
I can't say I've heard this diagnosis around here (but I could be wrong!) but I know there's a few moms of children with hearing loss here. My DD (and I think another parent as well) has auditory processing difficulties which present similarly. She doesn't babble much and has problems with understanding instructions especially with lots of background noise (which is constant with a chatty three year old). We use a lot of sign language and we're starting with PECS (which is a visual communication piece) to help.
km3:First time looking at this board; I actually clicked it on accident as I was scrolling on my phone, but AN caught my eye. I'm an audiologist. If you have any questions about AN or hearing loss, reply here or shoot me a PM.
Amajane, AN is diagnosed by doing a certain type of ABR auditory brainstem response.
Thanks! Well her BAER test shows mod-severe mixed loss (which is inconsistent with a BAER from 3 years ago) and her behavioral test shows mild-mod loss (which is what we have always thought she has). I don't know if she has sone an ABR since she was an infant. Does that make sense?
