My foster son, Lu, is 3 years old (we have had him since 8 days old) and we are finalizing his adoption next month. We just found out this year through ABR test that Lu has profound hearing loss in his right ear and mod-severe in his left. He was born substance exposed and was in nicu his first week of life. He has been wearing hearing aids for the past 3 months, but i feel certain he is hearing nothing through the right one. We have been told he is not eligible for CI in one ear bc he is under 5. And not eligible for bilateral CI bc he can still "hear" in his left ear. Is this accurate? He was prelingual when his hearing loss occurred, so we are very concerned for his speech development and possibly missing the "hearing window". Thanks for any insights you may have for me!
Good morning fellow hearpeers, I thought I'd share my funny morning.... Tiaan, my 4 year old son, with a Med-El Vibrant Soundbridge on his left side, came running to me this morning, very impressed that one of his magnet toys is sticking to his head!!!! Oh my goodness, I had such a laugh. We never ever have one single boring moment in our house with this funny child of ours. Hope you all have a brilliant day! Haidee
