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?
