Auditory verbal therapy FAQs My baby can’t hear so why bother with hearing aids? If your baby has a profound hearing loss and you haven’t seen any responses to sound yet, this doesn’t always mean he/she can’t hear at all. It is actually more common for children with a profound hearing loss to have some useful hearing still. The important thing is to make sure that your baby’s hearing aids are set so that she can use his/her hearing well. This happens by working together with your local audiologist. The sessions with your auditory verbal therapist will then focus on teaching your baby to learn that sound is meaningful.
