According to researches at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh, Inserting tubes in the eardrums of children under the age of 3 has no measurable effect on improving speech, language, cognitive or psychosocial development.

The researches studied 588 3 year olds from infancy and concluded that their findings provided no evidence that the insertion of ear tubes improves a child's developmental progress. Approximately 280,000 children under the age of 3 have tubes inserted annually.
