How to cure hearing loss in baby?

Hi, I am Khalil ,my son age is 1 1/2 month. We are observed that my son is not listens properly. So we consulted to children’s doctor, they told us to done the OAE/ BERA test in KEM pune.We had done this test and report said that his Right Ear: Moderate severe hear loss and Left Ear: Severe hearing loss. They told us to repeat the BERA test after 1months. So my question is there is chances of improving in listening? What is solution for this and causes? Regards, Khalil

The ability of hearing is very important in development of speech in kids. Results of BERA performed by an audiologist not only help in identifying the cause of hearing loss but also help in deciding type of hearing aid that might be required.
Early identification of the cause of hearing problem along with early treatment (like hearing aid, cochlear implant etc.) has been associated with improved speech outcomes in infants.
Your child may require hearing aid at least in left ear.
