Many children suffer from hearing loss conditions, which affects their social as well as their academic development. It is important for parents to be aware of the different signs that may indicate hearing damage, as to be able to treat the child as soon as possible.

There are many hearing tests available that can detect a child may suffer from loss of hearing. One of them is the Ling Six-Sound Test. This test, as the name suggests, uses six sounds to determine the level of hearing loss a child may have. These sounds are:  /m/, /oo/, /ah/, /ee/, /sh/, /s/. The test is performed on children from 0 to 5 years old, as early detection prevents a delay in their cognitive abilities.

It is important to have your child’s hearing checked, as early as possible by visiting a Miami hearing center. An audiologist will be able to perform the right test that will provide with the necessary information for the early treatment of hearing damage.
