Hi, Im not a mom but I am a preschool teacher. I teach a small class of 6 toddlers from 2-3 years. I am concerned with one of the children in my class. He is turning two years old in nine days. He has no speech at all, and no babbling. In order to communicate he grunts and points. A little back story; he is one of five children, he has three older sister, the oldest of which is five and one younger brother who is about 3 weeks old. The family is from a lower income/ low SES. I am thinking that he may have a hearing problem. I a few questions...
1. Has anyone experienced a similar situation?
2. How would I go about "testing" his hearing in class before I approach his mother about my concerns?
3. How should I approach this concern with his mother?
Thank you in advance, any input is much appreciated!!
