Hi we’re the B.’s!
Our son was identified as being Single Side Deaf (he has a profound sensorineural loss on one side, normal hearing on the other) at six weeks old via ABR, after failing his newborn hearing screening in the hospital and again at two weeks old. We have chosen not to try a BAHA (the only available option to him, given that his nerve is absent or hypoplastic) until he can express if he likes it or not. We focus on giving him a great listening environment, and on his language development. So far he is on track and speaks both English and some Polish.
