Re: I need some help - DD may have hearing loss
Thanks everyone. We are on the road. I have a new SLP meeting her tomorrow with her early intervention worker. (IDP for those Canadian mamas). We have a ped appointment on the 12th (peds are specialists here) and I will ask to be sent for the ABR. Depending on what the ped thinks I may try to self refer to the early hearing loss program. I think generally parents should have a better idea of what kind of loss hearing loss they are dealing with before being referred but it isn't going to hurt to get a jump on the paperwork and potential waitlist. Thanks everyone SO MUCH. I'm having a really hard time with this - I lost my cell phone charger and ended up crying in my driveway for 30 minutes - lol. It isn't because of the hearing issues though, it's because we've BTDT having a special needs child and it is NEVER as simple as it seems like it is going to be. I already have kids in an average of 10 hours of therapy A WEEK and I just don't know how I am going to manage another new team
