This paper begins by discussing the importance of diagnosing hearing disabilities, since these impact students both socially and academically, and then goes on to describe a case study of a 9-year-old boy with a hearing problem. The paper explains how the writer carried out a study to identify the extent of the child's hearing problem and explains several of the signals that indicate the existence of hearing difficulties. The paper concludes with the steps that were taken to address the boy's hearing problem and how these steps were seen to positively impact the boy after a period of six months.

From the Paper:

"Teachers may recognize hearing loss in a child before parents or physicians. Students passing school screening may still have trouble. "Screening levels cannot be set too low due to primarily to ambient noise levels in the testing environments" (Mamlin and Dodd-Murphy 2002). Many people who are responsible for the hearing screenings may increase the levels to accommodate the background noises. This will result in more students passing the test, but not recognizing the students who may need the help. Because of these limitations of school hearing screenings, it is necessary for the teacher to take action when they observe behaviors or physical symptoms that may point toward hearing loss."
