Older Children

For children aged 5 years and older.

This test is known as pure tone audiometry. Our professional audiologist uses an electrical machine which produces sounds at different volumes and pitches. These sounds are emitted in your child’s ear. We ask your child to raise their hand or push a button when the tone is heard. Using earphones we can assess which frequencies are being detected by your child. To schedule an appointment with our audiologist contact Kids Hear Diagnostic Audiology today.

What Happens if Hearing Loss is Detected?

If our audiologist discovers your child has hearing loss another test is conducted. Using a bone conduction oscillator, we determine whether the hearing loss affects the outer, middle or inner ear.
