Coleman was three when his parents noticed he didn’t always respond to things they or anyone else told hi,m, his speech was slow to develop too, they took him to the doctor and that was how they found Derrick was losing his hearing, the reason they got was that because both Derrick Sr. and Mrs. Coleman were missing hearing genes, the combination of the two resulted in the absence  of the hearing gene for Derrick.
