Hi All

I am a teacher and was enlightened by a colleague that boys hearing develops later/after girls. That is why they struggle to follow instruction clearly.

However, I have failed to find the research done on this to back it up so I am somewhat skeptical.

I do know boys speech develops on average a few months later than girls but that is an accepted standard and doesn´t hinder boys learning in anyway.

Cheers in advance
