At what point should one be concerned about a child's hearing?
At what point should one be concerned about a child's hearing? Our young boy has just turned 2 and sometimes his nursery carers and us notice he doesn't seem to hear us. GP says too early to say but we don't want to leave it too late?
I would suggest you go and have a chat with your health visitor. It's never too early to get hearing checks, and the fact that both you and his nursery have noticed a potential problem make it much more likely that this isn't just him getting distracted in certain situations, or selective hearing. Having said that, it's entirely possible that there isn't a real issue, but I do think he needs a formal audiology assessment. This can be easily arranged by your health visitor.
