Age-appropriate speech testing
This test involves your child listening to (age-appropriate) words or sentences with or without their hearing aids / listening devices. Their response may be pointing to a corresponding picture or toy, or repeating the word or sentence back to the audiologist. The test can be carried out at different hearing levels/noise to simulate more difficult listening environments. Speech testing gives the child or parent an opportunity to evaluate how well their child is able to perceive speech in different listening situations.
