Blair told The West Australian hearing loss runs in her side of the family, so she was not surprised when Jordan failed hearing tests.
“He had the newborn hearing screening and failed the first assessment. He had another one a couple of days later and failed again,” she said. "He wouldn’t react to our dog barking or making noises. We have a 2-year-old who flinches or cries when he hears those loud noises, so we knew something wasn’t right."
After over 20 appointments, the one captured on video by Blair and her husband, Damien Blair, was a welcome change.
Blair said that a day after her son got his hearing aids, which she said were set at moderate to severe, he's been resting easier.
“Normally, he’s hard to put down, I don’t know if it had anything to do with him not being able to see or hear us. But now, when I put him down in the bouncer or in bed, he’s fine and looking around and making noises," she said.
