  • I am an RN... Don't be worried just yet sweetie! It could be build up in the ear, he might have fluid in his ears and need tubs put in or his ears could not be developed all the way yet for some reason.... if u have any questions just message me

  • if he becomes deaf or is deaf, dont treat him any differently than you normally would. he isnt "challenged" he is only deaf.

    learn some american sign language and start signing with him.

  • I wanted to know if these test were done at school? If so you should go to the DR Office before you worry. The school checked my boys eye's out and said he had to go to the DR it turned out that he was not doing the test right or didn't understand what they told him to do. Go to the DR before you worry.

  • I agree with pp. If it was at school have your doctor check him. William has failed many hearing tests. he has either not done them right or had some fluid buildup. If it was fluid buildup they would give him meds to clear it up. If that didn't work they did tubes. He is now 8 and his hearing his fine.
