Children with autism exhibit many issues with hearing and balance including sensitivities to loud noises, dizziness, unsteady gait, speech and language development and more. Please join me for this interview with auditory specialist, Margaret “Peggy” Glenney.

Some of the topics we will discuss:

What are the risk factors for auditory/vestibular developmental delays?
What are some red flags of auditory developmental delays?
It’s important to find these kids early. With traditional peripheral hearing loss, the importance of early intervention and identification is well known, courtesy of Marion Downs, who is sometimes referred to as the founding mother of pediatric audiology. Margaret “Peggy” Glenney, advocates for central auditory delays and disorders. Parents will benefit greatly from early identification.

What tests parents should ask for

Many pieces are missing in traditional “peripheral’ auditory testing. Your child may have a normal audiogram but is not hearing properly in the brain. When you seek a professional it is best to ask them to check your child’s inner ear reflex muscle with the middle ear analyzer, or companogram reflex test. Also ask for Jack Katz’, staggered spondaic word test to be part of your child’s treatment.
