    Hearing Loss in Babies, Newborn to Age 3 Months

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

    Does your child:

    • Listen to speech?
    • Turn to you when you speak?
    • Smile when spoken to?
    • Seem to recognize your voice?
    • Quiet his or her crying when you speak?
    • Startle or cry at noises?
    • Awaken to loud sounds?
