WHAT DO THE RESULTS MEAN?
If your child has passed the hearing screening it means that on the day of assessment, hearing levels fell within an acceptable range. Regular hearing assessment is still recommended.
If your child did not pass the hearing screening, it means that at the time of testing there were factors that raised concerns for the audiologist, indicating the need for further and more extensive assessment. This may be the presence of wax in the ear canals, an ear infection, poor responses to the test stimuli, a child who found it difficult to respond appropriately in the assessment situation or a combination of these factors.
