HEARING ISSUES AT DEVELOPMENTAL AGES

Is your child having issues speaking or mimicking your sounds? This could be due to a hearing issue you didn’t know they had. When a child is not able to hear clearly, the are at a high risk of developing speech issues later on in life.

Children may develop a stutter, lisp, or childhood apraxia of speech (CAS) as a result of their difficulties hearing. There are several reasons why your child may not be developing speech, but it is a good idea to get their hearing checked even if there is no family history of childhood hearing loss. Speech therapists will often request a hearing test prior to the start of treatment as therapy will not help your child if they are unable to hear the sounds of speech correctly.
