Just a quick update until I have more time…
We visited the audiology department at Arnold Palmer for our second ABR test for Matthew last Thursday. She interpreted the test to mean that Matthew has auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (for now, I'll let you do research on your own). Though we can see why she came to that conclusion, she refused to give me the test (the auditory wave forms) showing why the ANSD conclusion was reached. She was unable to diagnose because she has her masters degree, not a doctorate. We plan to get Matthew tested again at a different facility, possibly one further away due to the fact we need someone who understands ANSD to run the test and diagnose.
That's all I can add for now! we will update later…I promise!! THese boys keep me busy!!!
