Thank you for your query,
Throat infection usually doesn't cause any hearing inpairement and speaking problems.
But any ear effusions may interfere with hearing and may lead to mild deafness.
So the ears of the child should be examined physically by an ENT specialist to rule out any effusions in the ears.
And I advise you to go for BERA test to know his hearing status objectively.
Hope I have answered your query.
