FULL AUDIOMETRY ASSESSMENT WITH AUDIOLOGIST IN CLINIC
For positive screening results this would be an escalated process to establish the extent of the damage and action plan
The person whose hearing is being tested listens to sounds transmitted by the certified screener and presses a button to signal when they have heard a sound. During a hearing test, the certified screener will play different frequencies of sound via a machine in a sound booth at very low frequencies. Sounds gradually increase these levels until the sound is audible.
