Symptoms of hearing loss

14 January 2015, 09:22

Nairobi - The symptoms of hearing deficiency are so varied that no one symptom would be interpreted as indicating the possibility of a loss, but if a child exhibited a number of such symptoms he should be tested. Some of the symptoms are:

   - frequent earaches and complaints of ear difficulties
   - frequent colds with ear discharge
   - lack of attention to casual conversation
   - late to start talking
   - verbal directions ignored consistently
   - tendency to be withdrawn and lack of desire to be involved in social activities
   - difficulty in articulating certain speech sounds
   - frequent confusion as to what has been said
   - constant visual scanning of the speakers’ face
   - consistently turning the head to one side when paying attention to for example a teacher
   - reading disability
   - spelling errors
   - difficulty in taking dictation
   - indifference to music
   - daydreaming

Remember, waiting for these signs is waiting until it is much too late.
