I have a ds 2/12 with a recently diagnosed mild loss in higher frequences He has had three hearing test twice with fluid in his ears. one clear. march of 06 results seemsed ok with fluid recomeded retest retest in 1/07 mild loss ears clear test to confirm 2/07 fluid. The first aud. said the fluid afrfected his hearing but it seemed to be alright. We left that practice and went to children hospital boston, because I was not happy with care dd was reciving, I should have retest ds hearing asap, but they made it seem like it was fine and maybe it was then we will never know. They are not recomending aides at this time. (younger sib has mild moderate loss picked up at birth speech issues lets check hearing) anyway he often complains things are too loud. live music, ex drums if the tv remote gets into dd (13mos) hands she turns it up, too loud, trucks things that are loud but he seems over sensitive This also came up when we had a sensory profile done He also does not like loud groups fro ex we wnet to a birthday party at a vfw it was busy lots of people ds covered his ears and stayed on the side lines and hes not ussually a side line kid I use to teach toddlers and we stop by once in a while to say hi and he always jumps right in the happenings of the room. Today we went a party at a house ds seperated himself when we were all sitting playing with the new puzzle and food set nothing loud 8 kids 7 adults, hanging out playing, not too loud nice actually, kids range in a from 13 mos to 6 years.
I guess my question is are things too loud for him or to many different sound around and he can't seperate them so hes just hearing noise? Is this normal for a toddler with his type of loss?
