A second audiology report/ENT visit confirmed Brownie's hearing loss--it's slight, but it's there. Left ear worse than the right. This doctor was more thorough and less dismissive than the first--he looked in Brownie's ears and couldn't see any fluid. So tubes might help and they might not-he said it's 50/50. The loss isn't profound enough to warrant hearing aids--in school he'd probably need an FM system, preferential seating, etc. It also explains why he struggled so much in a (Special Education!) class of 15 kids. My question--and I'm not finding a lot of information about this--is finding more about the correlation between hearing loss and behavior disorders...not to achieve any end, so to speak, but just for my own info...anyway, just wanted to see if anyone out there had experience, either your own or friends' kids, students, etc.
