Do they use the phrase "sorry can't hear you"? If they do what age s
Did they start using it.do they use this pass phrase due to they can't hear? Is it just a habit put are they copying someone? I have an iep meeting next week and my son has started doing this. I want to know how to address this at his meeting. He doesn't have aids. At least the docs aren't suggesting them yet. Long story short his first seat of tubes got impacted. He has a retracted drum in his left ear which is the one he is cupping when saying this. He got sick about 2 weeks ago which is about when he started doing this. Sorry don't know how to make paragraphs òn my phone. He is only doing this to me. I have a really low pitched voice. He isn't doing it all the time. Also when and if your kids hearing improved and they finally started talking decent did they use broken sentence? If so how long stuff they use broken sentences. He has been hearing about a yr and a half now.he is in ppcd and daily speech. Out seems the broken sentences should have stopped by now.

 DS was shrugged off until he was 4 for tubes.  We always thought he was being a smarty pants saying WHAT?  He would just ignore us as well.  When I was finally done with whatever was going on he had had 9 ear infections in a year and some of them took rounds of antibiotics to clear.  His Dr never mentioned tubes.  His preschool teacher said she was concerned about his letter sounds.  Clouds were plouds  Cucumbers were cunumbers   Avenue was Avenoon.  If he wasnt sure of a sound he would guess and we chalked it up to being OH the cute things kids say.  His teacher has a specialist from the school come in and she said he was fine and I BLEW UP!  I demanded they test his ears and he failed.  His teacher gave me the papers to give to the DR who then took me serious.  She sent us for a hearing test and he had hearing loss. It was almost immediate that he started hearing things.  Once we got home from having his tubes and he woke up he had to pee.  He came out and said the potty was broke.  I went in and it was fine... He said WHY is it making noise.  I started crying because it hit me that he hadnt even been able to hear the water running in the tank for WHO KNOWS how long.  Something as stupid as water right.  Hes 7 now.  Both of his tubes are still in.  Aiden still says plouds cunumbers and avenoon.  I think its just habit and what they know.  Once they are older they will catch it and it will click as to what it should be.  If you have any worries take him back to his ENT.  I feel so bad because there were so many times we corrected him for not doing what he was told or thinking he was being funny by making us repeat ourself 10 times.  Its an important age for hearing.  Good luck and I hope he feels better.

You are welcome! I'm sorry. DD is 1 and just got fitted for hearing aids. So I am really of no help.

His older brother also had tubes. He had the words that came out wrong.but it seems like he didn't do the broken sentences but that was also 22 yrs. Ago. I think he may have picked up the can't hear you thing off of one of the bus drivers. That seems more of an adult thing. Kids tend to say huh. Or whatlike yours said. So I wonder if he is just mimicking. After all his girlfriend mimics so that may just be cool to him. Howlong would you wait to decide is not a phase and he needs his ears checked again?
