Your Childs Hearing Problems May Not Be Due To Hearing Loss
You might be surprised to hear that one of the most common types of hearing loss is not due to a damaged ear but is actually caused by an ear wax build up. Other conditions such as an ear infection or other treatable inner ear issues can instantly restore your hearing once treated. Book your childs complete, diagnostic hearing test today with an expert audiologist.

Free vs Paid Hearing Tests
There are 2 main reasons that you may wish to choose a paid hearing test over a free hearing test. First, when you pay for a hearing test you can be assured that a fully trained and experienced audiologist will be performing the test. Also, a paid test will be conducted in a fully sound-treated room or booth with multiple tests being performed to get a complete picture of your hearing and your ear's health.
- Audiologists vs. AudiometristsBoth are healthcare professionals who seek to improve the lives of people with hearing loss however each has different qualifications and responsibilities. An audiologist specialises in medical assessment and management of hearing loss, identifying, treating, and monitoring disorders of the auditory and vestibular systems. However, audiometrists specialise in the non-medical assessment and management of hearing loss and have a reduced scope of practice compared to audiologists
- Basic Vs Complete TestA complete hearing test should offer Otoscopy and Pure Tone Audiometry with Air-Conduction and Bone-Conduction testing. The full spectrum of frequencies should be tested allowing for the understanding of the patient's hearing ability and location of hearing loss in the auditory pathway. A free hearing test is usually just a screening and it will be a quick 5 or 10 minute test that you will simply pass or fail.
A paid hearing test is usually performed in a sound-treated room or booth and is carried out by a fully trained and experienced audiologist. Alternatively, a free hearing test can take place in a storefront, sound-treated room or booth and can be carried out by an audiologist, audiometrist, nurse, or hearing clinic receptionist.
