Hearing and Understanding


*Above information from the American Speech and Hearing Association

*Every child is unique and has an individual rate of development. The above norms represent, on average, the age by which MOST children will accomplish the above listed skills. Children do not typically master all items in a category until they reach the upper age range. Just because your child has not accomplished one skill within an age range does not mean the child has a disorder.
