Part of having Down syndrome means tests. Sometimes lots and lots of tests. Today, Lauren will go in for hearing test – kids with Down syndrome can have hearing loss. The severity varies from child to child, and in Lauren’s case, her hearing loss has always been mild. We find out later today if her hearing has changed since the last time she had the test done. #inspiredbyDownsyndrome
Update: Lauren still has mild hearing loss. We did this as a baseline since she will be having ear surgery in June. They will test again a few months after her surgery, to see if what they did made a change.
