Reliable & Professional Hearing Tests For Kids Perth
Kerryn sees children from the age of approximately 3 months old. If your child is close to this age, we may have to ask you a few extra questions before making an appointment to ensure they can properly complete the testing. If you are located in Geraldton we may be able to see your child if they are over 2 ½ years old. Please read on for more information.
Hearing Tests for Kids Under 2 ½ Years
We generally use behavioural audiometry to test the hearing of children under 2 ½ years. This means we play sounds and observe your child’s response. Children do not require any language skills for this type of hearing test. There are two types of behavioural audiometry:
Due to the specialized equipment required for these tests, we only perform behavioural audiometry at our hearing clinic in Duncraig.
Hearing Tests for Kids Over 2 ½ Years
We generally use play audiometry to test the hearing of children over 2 ½ years. This involves teaching the child to respond to sounds as part of a game and then recording which sounds they respond to.
Hearing Tests for Kids Over the Age of Approximately 5 Years
We can test their hearing in the sound booth and any of our audiologists can perform this test at any of our hearing clinics in Perth or Geraldton.

After the Hearing Test
At the conclusion of your child’s hearing test, our audiologist will go over the results with you and send a copy of the results to your doctor or school if needed. We will offer practical advice on how to improve your child’s hearing if they are experiencing hearing loss and also discuss possible hearing loss treatments if required.
Please be aware that sometimes children can become too tired or distracted to complete a full hearing test. We will always do our best to perform a thorough assessment, but the welfare of your child comes first. If we are unable to obtain full results we may be able to make recommendations based on the results we have obtained, or we may need to continue testing at a later date.
