Hearing assessments are painless and will determine and measure what your child can and cannot hear, across varying pitches of sound. Results are plotted onto a graph called an audiogram showing the degree of hearing loss: mild, moderate, severe or profound. It will also identify which part of your child’s hearing anatomy is affected. The audiogram can be provided to your paediatrician, GP and/or specialist on its own, or as part of a comprehensive audiological report.
Auditory Processing Disorder
Auditory Processing Disorder, often called APD or CAPD (Central), refers to how the central nervous system uses auditory information. In simple terms, this means the nerves that are responsible for delivering sound from the ear to the brain are not functioning correctly.
Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) develop at a different rate and do not necessarily develop skills in the same order as typically developing children. They can find it hard to pay attention to others, communicate, and understand other perspectives, all of which can affect their learning and development. Hear Check specializes in helping children with ASD hear.
Hearing Aid Fittings
