    Terry, You asked if my difficult child has this. She is deaf in one ear, I believe congenital and has signs of this. There are things that can reduce the frustration like talking close with good ear, little background noise, and speaking close and slowly. Compassion

    When my difficult child was tested by the audiologist--I was amazed to learn how little of what people said was actually getting through to her.

    Her ears hear perfectly--but her brain cannot process the information efficiently...and she is only catching every-other-phrase or so. The frustration, of course,is that she misses so much auditory information--and she doesn't even realize it.

    This has been one of the big struggles when it somes to school. She can't take proper notes if she is not catching what the teacher is saying...and yet she does not like to use the aids that are provided for her. She resists copying written information--because she figures she'll just remember what the teacher said.

    Ugh! I can't win... (what are the three C's again?...)
