In addition, a list of what you can do to help your child learn to speak and to use his/her hearing is also included.

If your child fails to respond as the checklist suggests, there may be problems that require further evaluation. You may wish to discuss this with you pediatrician, who will then refer you to an ENT (ear, nose and throat) Specialist, as well as an Audiologist for further investigation.
