Paediatric Audiology

All children should have a full hearing assessment before they start school even if there are no perceived hearing problems.
A mild or unilateral hearing loss is very difficult to detect without a thorough hearing assessment.

How will I know if my preschool or older child has a hearing problem

Does your child do any of the following?

  • Not reply when he/she is called
  • Complain of ear pain or head noise?
  • Respond inappropriately to questions?
  • Seem to speak different to other children their age?
  • Have difficulty understanding what people are saying
  • Have problems academically?
  • Turn up the volume of the T.V excessively loud?
