DO you need a Hearing Test?
Tests of hearing acuity include:
pure tone and speech audiogram
tympanometry (middle ear function test)
loudness discomfort levels
For children, especially over the age of 3, modified versions of some of these tests are performed, including play to make the testing more appealing. For a child 18 months to 3 years, we have screening tests that can be performed.
However, for very young babies and infants, the testing is quite specific and success will depend on the infant’s stage of development.
