< BACK TO PATIENTS
Sebastián was diagnosed with autism at age three. Although many children with autism have speech delays, his parents wonder if he can hear. In Bolivia, newborns do not receive a hearing screen at birth, so babies born with hearing loss may present like a child with autism. RVF will facilitate an evaluation with an audiologist to be sure that he is able to hear before proceeding with speech therapy. The family is very grateful for this support.
