Testing children often involves different procedures than adults due to their abilities at various stages in infancy and childhood. Fidelity Hearing Centre offer a range of services to assess hearing at different age groups.
Under 5 years of age: tympanometry is performed to assess middle ear health. Otoacoustic Emissions are performed to confirm normal inner ear (cochlea) function.
Between ages 5-7: play audiometry (pure tone audiometry) is performed in addition to the above.
Above the age of 7: further detail in pure tone audiometry can be obtained with the addition of bone conduction where possible and where deemed necessary.
If you are looking for caring professionals, able to fully and accurately assess your child’s hearing, then you have found the right place.
