Hearing tests for children

One of my favorite Dr. Steiker stories is before there were hearing tests he used to send a child to the other end of the room and whisper, "Would you like a piece of candy?" And if they said "Yes" he would report to the parents that their child could hear just fine. May his memory be a blessing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
