It could also be something very rare called auditory neuropathy.
Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD) is clinically characterized as a difficulty in word comprehension for cases of little to moderate hearing loss, especially in noisy environments [1].
Contributed by otolaryngologists, neurotologists, developmental behavioral pediatricians, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and other specialists from North America, Israel, and China, the 23 chapters in this volume describe the clinical management, assessment, rehabilitation, and education of children with cochlear implants, as well as working with special populations, such as children with additional disabilities, those with auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder, or prelingually deaf children.
