Raising a Daughter With Hearing Loss
My daughter, Lindsey, has hearing loss. She is 7 years old. Lindsey passed her newborn hearing screening and developed speech. She is 7 years old. Lindsey passed her newborn hearing screening and developed speech. We are not sure when she began to lose her hearing. We started to notice something was wrong when she was 2. She was always loud, if she was happy, sad or upset. Lindsey never had a quiet voice. If we would ask her something and her back was turned she would not respond. There were so many signs that I didn't recognize. For example, I would pick her up from preschool and as we are walking out I would ask about her day. She wouldn't respond to me or she would start talking about something completely unrelated. She would respond more to my husband since his voice is much deeper than mine.
