See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
DD 7, has hearing loss. She has never in her life passed a hearing test, she was born 2 months early so we are pretty sure that is the cause. Every year it gets gradually worse but twice a year the school sends us to an audiologist (because she failed) and the audiologist sends us to an ENT who says its not fluid in the ears, she's never had an ear infection and doesn't need tubes and then sends us back to the audiologist who then recommends preferential seating etc. This has been happening twice a year since she was 2. We are of course doing our fall visit to the audiologist on Monday but this time I think we may have a more serious problem then in the past. She is struggling in school, misunderstands what I say a lot, and she has to have the TV really loud. These are new issues as her hearing loss has always been so small it never caused an issue at home before but its becoming a problem because she is not hearing me. If your child has hearing loss do they have hearing aids? if so when did they get them and did you have to go through this? It's really frustrating because she already has every other accomodation there is in school and I really think its time for hearing aids. Any advice would be helpful
