Welcome to the board! Maria is the audiologist in the "family," so I defer to her technical knowledge. I was going to ask if your daughter had an ABR done, but your lst post indicated as much. When the kiddos are really little, reliability of behavior-based hearing tests can be iffy, so... Depending on the resource, a 20 dB loss is within normal range. However, in my state, a 20 dB loss + or - 5 dB meets medical eligibility for deaf/hard-of-hearing programs. I emphasize the medical because, for special education services, there must lso be educational need.
