Can you hear me? Our Audiologist visit

A few days ago, I took my son to visit the audiologist. Since our last visit to the neurologist ruled out any issue there, the next step was to rule out any hearing issues as the cause to my son's speech delay.

Meeting the audiologist was slightly amusing. In part for me and definitely for my son. She was a bit on the younger side and very playful. She made getting the test a fun type game for my son. The tests went in different parts, one checked my son's ear for fluid or blockage, another tested my son's reaction to sounds. While I'm sure all the test were serious, my son didn't stress or get fussy about going through them.

In the end, the audiologist didn't think my son had a hearing problem. I agree but we had to "officially" rule it out.

As we left, I thought about the audio "process" for children. What children hear and when they hear it can be an interesting thing. While my son can't seem to "hear" me say it's time to clean up his toys, he can clearly hear me say I have chocolate.
