When Should Your Child Have Their Hearing Tested?
It’s important to have your child’s hearing tested at an early age to detect any hearing issues and start treatment as soon as possible. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all newborns be screened for hearing loss before leaving the hospital. After that, your child should have their hearing tested at regular intervals as they grow up.
What Can You Expect During Your Child’s Hearing Evaluation at Our Clinic?
Our pediatric hearing evaluations include a range of tests to assess your child’s hearing abilities. Depending on your child’s age and level of understanding, our audiologists may conduct different hearing tests, including pure tone audiometry and tympanometry.
Pure Tone Audiometry
This test uses an electrical machine that produces sounds in your child’s ears at various decibel levels and pitches. Your child will be asked to respond in some way when the tone is heard in the earphone.
This test tells us how the middle ear is working. Although it does not test if your child can hear, it is still essential because this test can find any changes in pressure in the middle ear.

When choosing a pediatric audiology clinic for your child’s hearing evaluation, it’s essential to look for a clinic with experienced and licensed audiologists who specialize in working with children. Our team at Trinity Hearing Healthcare has extensive experience testing and fitting hearing aids in children and is committed to providing the best possible care for your child’s hearing health.
