My kids have been through the standard screenings at the pediatrician and at school.

You know, this was a casual thought I had but you really have me thinking :)

I've never had a bad experience with my pediatrician, but this doesn't mean they know everything.... nobody does!

I guess it was sort of both, just something that's crossed my mind before!

The screenings at school are just that ... screenings.

Hi. Is ths personal, or a general question? I always tell a mom to trust her instinct! If you think there is a probelm and aren't satisfied with the pediatricians 5 min test, ask to see or schedule an appointment with a pediatric audiologist! Just because your child can hear a wisper doesn't mean they don't have a hearing loss!!
