Hi Mandy!

Based on your concerns it seems that you should also consider taking your daughter for a consultation to an Audiologist who would also work together with an ENT Specialist, as the described concerns may warrant an audiometric evaluation. Hearing is very important for young children and directly impacts on language development. You may contact ENT specialists at goverment or private hospitals. For ENT specialists at private hospitals you may consider: Parklands Hospital {Dr Rajput: 031-208 5445}, St. Augustine {DR King: 031-202 3018}, Entabeni {DR P. Desmarais: 031-261 1278} or Umhlanga hospital {Dr P.K Soni: 031-502 7930}, to name a few at random. It is imperative that you arrange for an appropriate consult as soon as possible.

Kind regards.....
