Hearing Loss for a 6 year old

We took our 6 year-old to the Audiologist and it turns out he needs hearing aids too. We wanted to just test his hearing since one of his previous therapists suggested it.

His hearing loss is in the mild to moderate range. His younger brother has a more severe hearing loss in one of his ears. They recommended that our 6 yo get hearing aids in both of his ears. We were worried that he wouldn’t accept wearing hearing aids because of his Sensory Processing Disorder but surprisingly he is doing well with them.

Here is a quick picture or two of one of his hearing aids from the day they came in.
