Q.

Hearing for 3 year old

HI Doc

My son is 3 years old. I''m not quite sure what is wrong with his hearing. When you i talk to him and he''s looking at me, he responds but if he''s not looking at me or playing he does not respond. I''ve taken him to different doctors and they say his hearing does not have a problem? i''m confused, please help
