Pediatric hearing tests are in essence similar to the standard test battery for adults, with a few adaptations to incorporate smaller children.
Typically as with adults, we also have a look at the structural functioning of the 3 parts of the ear. The functional part of the assessment is where the main difference and adaptations comes in. Examples of these adaptations are Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA) and Play Audiometry which includes the building of blocks, listening to birds, airplanes, mice, flying an airplane and many more versions of the same games.
Since we know that any visit to a doctor can be intimidating for the little ones we aim to ensure that their experience is as comfortable and relaxed as possible. In this way we ensure reliable results and lots of happy campers.
