Hi Dorah!

Based on the concerns highlighted it would be a good idea for you to consider a multidisciplinary approach with regard to assistance for your son. Thus making an appointment with an Ear Nose and Throat {ENT} specialist or Physician would be a good starting point. Thereafter, a visit to an Audiologist and Speech therapist would be warranted. Only upon appropriate consultations with the above health professionals would appropriate assessment and management thereof proceed. Please contact the above health professionals for consultations without delay. Kind regards...
