my son is 4 mo old and after 2 ABRs was dx with a mild hearing loss in his left ear. The audiologist recommended a hearing aid and EI, our ENT says "no downside to it" but did not say "get it", our Ped has no opinion on a hearing aid but says "no" to EI for now. So I'm confused. I have to add that if Jakub didn't fail his NB screening on left side I would never tell he's got any hearing loss. I don't want to overdo it with the aid but I don't want him to miss out on any speech sounds either. So far he's been developing great and making all the sounds he's expeceted to. Are there any parents out there in a similar situation? Did you get the aid? Do you see a difference? should I wait? I appreciate any help comments, sugestions... Monika.
