645800 tn?1466860955 I had submitted an appeal on the disability rating the VA gave me for my service connected hearing loss. My contention was that due to my MS / PTSD that the effects of my hearing loss were greater than the VA was saying they are in the real world. According to the VA rules if a S/C disability make some other Non- S/C disability worse it becomes also S/C. Last week I found a hearing place that tested for Auditory Processing Disorder.
Avatar f tn IS THERE ANY OTHER HEARING TEST THAT I SHOULD CONSIDER? IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC HEARING PROBLEMS W/KIDS WHO ARE BORN W/TORTICOLLIS? I AM TRYING ALL POSSIBLE AVENUES TRYING TO FIGURE MY SON OUT. AND I DONT WANT SOMETHING LIKE HEARING PROBLEM TO DELAY HIM. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
Avatar f tn Speech problems is definitely a sign of a possible speech impediment. I would definitely suggest that she go to an audiologist to have her hearing checked. How do I know this? I am one of them.
Avatar n tn ) when I told him I thought all my problems were related. He wanted me to go to three different specialists (speech therapist, oral surgeon and endocrinologist) ...I went back to my family doctor and got a referral to an endocrinologist. I will go back to my family doctor and ask about the ultrasound results. Thanks for the input.
688450 tn?1259468734 ll just have to wait. On October 6th I decided to take him to a hearing specialist who could rule out a hearing problem. No one in this pre-school said that they thought he might have a hearing issue but If I wanted to just have him tested, that would be a good idea. You see, the thing is he has never had a cold, never has ever had a ear ache or ear infection. If there is some kind of problem with his hearing it must have happened before he was born.
Avatar f tn That would be for the problems hearing in noise and understanding what people say (needing to lipread). Could be language or could be auditory skills. Google auditory processing disorder and see if it sounds like what you are experiencing. 2. See a speech-language pathologist. Get all that language stuff checked out. The stuttering, the word-finding problems, and the time you spoke without being in control of it. Possibly the problems understanding people.
Avatar n tn Also you might want to ask an audiologist if hearing aids would benefit him. I am going to grad school for speech-language pathology and i don't remember if a sensori neural loss is benefited from hearing aids but that is one option that can be asked about. I think it sounds like you are doing a good job, you have him in therapy and that should really increase his ability to discriminate sounds.
Avatar f tn You need to warn him that this is lunch, and if he throws it off the table he won't get any more until dinner. And then stick with it. I'm sorry, you threw your lunch off the table, don't throw your dinner off the table too when it's time for dinner, or you won't get food then either. (Obviously you have to do with in moderation, he has to be able to eat. He can't miss several meals in a row but he doesn't have to know that in advance.
Avatar f tn Yes, repeated infections can have an impact on hearing. Your son's development of speech/language is definitiely delayed, and this warants evaluation by a Speech/Language therapist. But an audiological evaluation is crucial, because it is possible that the delay in speech is secondary to hearing loss.
Avatar n tn s palsy or maybe RH and then a few years later I came down after taking too many antibiotics with terrible hearing loss and aphasia, inability to understand speech or focus on speech and problems pronouncing words. I'm really worried I won't be able to work or study anymore. I was on a high pressurized airplane and I had taken some ampicillin and later tinidazole+doxycycline+roxithromycin and vitamin b complex.
Avatar n tn A professional can do testing to see exactly what the problem is. To my knowledge there is not usually a correlation between heart problems and speech problems however if she has had surgery and hospitalizations this could have an impact on her mentally which can impact her speech. How old is your child? Also if she had any kind of hearing problem or ear infections that could also play into a speech problem. My best suggestion is seeking out the advice of a professional.
Avatar f tn By the way, our nephew has excellent hearing, but he would not (or could not) respond to sounds or words when a young child. We thought he had major hearing problems, when in fact, it was cognitive issues. All the best ....
Avatar n tn s in an auditorium where the noise bounces off the walls or she may have balance problems. Today my daughter took her to a new pediatrician and he took a tympanometry test & he said that her ear drums didn't peak and aren't vibrating the way they should. The only problems I've noticed as far as a speech problem is that she pronounces w's like l's (lotter instead of water) and she seems to get frustrated sometimes when using a cell phone.
Avatar f tn He has a real hard time in the self help area. I have to be kind of rough to get him to do anything. I dont know if this is because of his speech or laziness. In social situations, he plunges ahead, not even really thinking about what to say or do. If he feels he is not getting attention he will act up. He is very sensitive to loud noises. He doesnt even like it when I run the vacume cleaner. He also fidgets a lot. I suspect he does have a learning problem besides speech.
Avatar m tn You responded to speech at 75 dB. But with your normal hearing in your left ear, it was probably due to bone conduction. Our skulls are good at conducting sound. When sound gets loud enough, it travels around to the other ear. That was what happened--the sound came in your right ear, but at 75 dB it was loud enough that it traveled through your skull to your left ear. You said that you heard it (raised your hand or whatever). But your audiologist did the right thing... Masking!
Avatar n tn Your issue does not seem to be completely related to hearing. A first step would be to rule out hearing dysfunction with a hearing test. After which, a discussion with a physician as well as an exam to check on various nerve function would be appropriate. Somethimes our inability to comprehend or create speech is due to anatomical or neurological impairment. However, in your case, starting with a hearing test and a physician exam would be the best recommendation. Good luck.
Avatar n tn We are going to get him speech therapy next month and he is having his hearing tested again. We just want him to say just one word!
Avatar n tn Diseases of the brainstem can result to abnormalities in the function of cranial nerves which may lead to visual disturbances, pupil abnormalities, changes in sensation, muscle weakness, hearing problems, vertigo, swallowing and speech difficulty, voice change, and co-ordination problems".

Avatar f tn If your son is repeatedly asking questions and needs you to repeat in order to understand, then he could be having some hearing loss—maybe brought about by the beads stuck in his ears. Hearing loss can delay speech development. Hence this needs to be first identified and then corrected. Please consult an ENT doctor and an audiologist. Take care!
1719131 tn?1316584213 so much that my mom has to tell me to turn it down more than once before I can’t hear it at all. I have a lot of problems filtering out the background noise to watch TV and I can’t concentrate at all. It’s always been a problem for me and it doesn’t seem like something autistic related. I just feel I have much odder hearing issues that aren’t defined under the autistic spectrum. I thought of central auditory processing disorder but I don’t want to self-diagnose either.
335728 tn?1331414412 I was chatting with my friend whom has been diagnosed with MS and I mentioned that my gp is going to send me for a hearing test after I complained about this ear pain. She responded that she has intermittent pain in both her ears and it is incredibly painful. We both likened it to having a sharp needle poking deep in our ears! On my behalf I find it happens every few weeks usually lasting for a few days to 2 weeks and sometimes it is debilitating the pain is so intense. She asked her dr.
Avatar n tn Thanks. Iam planning to goto a speech language pathologist. Can someone recommend a good speech language pathologist in NJ?.
1388445 tn?1289267388 Hi, I think what I'd do in your case is encourage her to answer and then you can do an interpretation for her. You are sure that she understands, right? Is it just articulation that is delayed? No issues with expressive or receptive speech? Sometimes, especially in unfamiliar situations with unfamiliar people, when someone asks a child a question---------- one must process what was said to them and then organize a reply.
Avatar m tn There are three parts of speech--- articulation (making the sounds) is one we all think of with speech. but there is also receptive speech (the ability to take in and organize what is said to you so that you can understand it) and expresssive (the ability to formulate the thoughts you want to express, to organize those thoughts into words to speak). Motor planning has a huge impact on these speech componants.
Avatar n tn Hearing impairment, deafness, or hearing loss refers to the inability to hear things, either totally or partially. Symptoms may be mild, moderate, severe or profound. A patient with mild hearing impairment may have problems understanding speech, especially if there is a lot of noise around, while those with moderate deafness may need a hearing aid. Some people are severely deaf and depend on lip-reading when communicating with others. People who are profoundly deaf can hear nothing at all.
Avatar m tn Then there is the mechanical part of communicating our language and that is speech. Problems with speech can include just trying to get the words out, pronouncing the words, the tonal quality of our speech, using emphasis and inflection. Problems with speech can be from weakness or spasticity of the muscles of our mouths, throats and vocal cords. Or it can be with the way our brain tries to direct the speech.
