Focusing on You: Pediatric Speech Delays and Hearing
The Intricate Speech-Hearing Connection
Dr. Leonardo Torres, a pediatric otolaryngologist at UHealth, the University of Miami Health System, discusses the connection between speech delays and fluid in the ears for young patients.
Should my child see a specialist?
Fluid in the ears should be monitored and removed, says Dr. Torres. If your child has had fluid in his or her ears for more than twelve weeks, it’s time to see a pediatric ENT.
