Child does not respond to sounds. Tests normal. Any treatment?

My son will be 4 years we have shown him to an ENT doctor who said the ear drums and everything else is normal but he advised for bera test. My son hears to sounds sometimes he does not respond for e.g we call him by his name surprisingly when my wife puts the cooker even the slightest wistle sound he can hear and he blocks his ears. My question is after doing the test and whatever are the results is there any treatment or medication so that he can speak.

thanks for writing to health care magic

Any child who cannot hear cannot learn to speak.

So first you should get a BERA to evaluate his hearing.

Based on the report one should decide what sort of help is required by your kid

Like some times a hearing aid may be required..........

Hope this helps
Take care

Thank you for your query,
BERA test is important in the evaluation to assess the hearing function.
It shows child ability to listen particular frquency of sounds objectively.
Any family history of hearing impairement?
There is treatment available if the test is abnormal to improve his hearing by putting hearing aids.
Hope I have answered your query.
