Hearing is essential for learning. Imagine a child is inattentive, poor listening skills getting bad grades. The first thought might be that your child is poorly behaved or has a learning disability. But you might want to consider the possibility that your child has a hearing loss. Even a temporary or mild hearing loss can have a major negative impact on learning, on academic performance, on literacy (reading and writing) skills and maths skills. Common signs are “day dreaming” “unable to follow instruction”, inappropriate response to questions”
If you think your child is not reaching their full potential in the classroom your child might have hearing difficulties.
