I've been up all night researching hearing loss in children. I guess Im just in need of comfort. My little girl is in Kindergarten this year and they did the usual hearing and eye screening recently.. JJ's (my Daughter) came back that she might have some inner ear fluid and the school suggested that we see an audiologist. We finally got to see him today, as you have to make an apptmnt a month in advance.. I was a little nervous that she might have to have tubes put in her ears at the most. I wish that was the case. He told us that she has moderate to severe hearing loss and that it will never get any better, I dont get it. shes only 6, and how has she made it this far? I always thought that there ws something a little off... I thought that she was just a slower learner than her older sister, I thought that she was just the quiet one of my kids because big sister is bossy and speaks for all 3.. JJ talks great dont get me wrong, theres a few sounds that are harder than others she's just not as loud as my other 2.. God, I'm rambling,, I dont know what to do, what questions to ask,..anything! we see the specialist June 1st to talk about hearing aids and to get an MRI.. I guess Im just looking for some experianced advice.. I dont know what to do..
