Hearing in the Classroom

Book a Hearing Check
Did you know that children need sound louder than adults to be able to hearing when there is background noise?

Amplification needed

This means that in classrooms it is very easy for children to miss what is being said by the teacher, especially within vibrant, busy and often noisy classrooms. Evidence tells us that children need the teacher’s voice to be about 10 decibels louder than what adults require, to be able to hear and learn effectively. For this reason, Hear Check recommends and specialises in classroom hearing augmentation systems, also called soundfield amplification systems.
