Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs)

Otoacoustic emissions testing is very quick and takes just a few minutes and can be used on children of all ages. It involves putting a soft tip into your child’s ear while they are quietly playing or stilling. It measures a robust response from a healthy inner ear and is useful as a screening tool to rule out a significant hearing loss (greater than 35dB) as part of a battery of tests and information.
