Could you be clearer? If he can identify grandma in photos, he's responding to you saying "point to grandma". You say he does not understand what you tell him - maybe I'm missing something - how do you know he can point to grandma if he can't understand that request?
Does he snore at night? Have you had his adenoids and tonsils checked. Does he get a lot of Upper Respiratory Infections? My son had his adenoids removed as they were obstructing his hearing. He could hear things but they sounded like they were underwater (as described the the Ear Nose Throat Specialist)?
So do you mean he doesnt respond if you speak to him, I would say thats hearing .yet he responds to other sounds?.
sounds like he needs an evaluation from a speech and language pathologist. He may have some form of auditory processing problems.
Thanks tiredbuthappy...we did an advanced auditory test called the BAER last year and per the result, he has profound hearing loss and he underwent and he underwent cochlear implant surgery last year and his language skills are improving..
Thanks for keeping us up to date. Glad to hear he ia getting better!
