Hearing Loss in Babies, Ages 7 Months to 1 Year

Assess changes in your child's behavior that might mean a hearing loss. Compare past behavior with present behavior.

Does your child:

  • Listen when spoken to?
  • Turn or look up when you call his or her name?
  • Respond to requests like "come here" or "want more?"
  • Recognize words for common items like cup, shoe, or juice?
