Dear one year old. If you just hold still for a while, this man is going to put a little thing into your ear. You then have to sit still and be completely quiet for about ten seconds so that we can do this test. We have to check your ears, you see, since many children with your diagnosis have problems with their ears. Hold still now, and be quiet while I hold this echo sounder in your ear. For ten seconds.
What were they thinking?
