Headphones will be placed on his ears and tones sent to each ear independently. If he responds its a positive. Also You can bounce a sound wave off his eardrum and judge by the strength and speed of its return , the health of the patients ear.

A hearing test that is being performed on a child of such a young age will have to be done by monitoring the child's reaction to different frequencies and tones.

If your child is familiar with his name try calling his name... see if he is responding. You can also try of high/low sounds while saying his name would be easier.
