Hearing Test

Violet had hearing test today, which went quite well. They are unable to test individual ears at this age, as her attention span would not be suitable for this kind of test until she is around 3 1/2.

The tests they did perform today showed she did have overall good hearing. But due to the whole left side of her body being asymmetrical, they think her ear would also have been affected by this. Meaning that this may have caused a slight hearing impairment.They will perform the more thorough test when she is 3 1/2, especially on her left ear to see if this is the case.

Sarah-
That is great news! Ivey has a slight hearing loss. She has had an ABR hearing test. Have you done this for Violet? They measured brainwaves.
