I ive notice my son starting to talking loud all the time, and he doesn't respond as much. we are starting to think hes becoming deaf. Im not sure what to do and what to expect from this.

It is extremely common for children to use a voice that is too loud for the situation. It is also very common for kids to become absorbed or distracted, and to not respond as much (or as quickly) as you'd expect them to. Most likely, your son is not losing his hearing if these are the only issues you're having.

It's very easy to have your son's hearing checked. Just have a hearing test done.

Even if they do find that he's not hearing as well as he should it could be something minor and easily corrected - like wax build up, or a lingering inner ear infection.
