• Children will occasionally have hearing loss that is unsubstantiated by results of audiological evaluation and that persists in spite of the audiologist's efforts to obtain valid hearing thresholds. In two cases we used suggestion as an effective means of restoring normal hearing behavior while support was given to help the child deal effectively with the problem underlying the hearing loss.
