Just because he does what you ask does not mean his hearing is good. He may still have a hearing problem and sounds are muffled and he can figure out what you want but when it comes to speaking he can't hear clearly enough to learn how to say the words. Talk to his doctor. Call your local school and get connected with AEA (area education agency) they provide free hearing screening and speech evaluation. If they find a delay or a problem they provide free therapy and hearing resources.
