Test Your Child’s Hearing






Test Your Child’s Hearing

Rodney Lusk, M.D.

Hi, I'm Doctor Rodney Lusk, Director of the Boys Town Ear, Nose and Throat Institute. You can assess the hearing loss in your own child by completing a hearing questionnaire.

How would you describe your child's hearing?

Normal, slightly below normal, poor, or very poor.

Has your child misunderstood words when he's not looking at you?

No, rarely, often, always.

Has your child had difficulty hearing when in groups?

No, rarely, often, or always.

If your child has failed two of the three questions there's a 79 percent chance of a documented hearing loss and should have a hearing test.
