How can I prepare my child for a hearing test?

First important thing to tell your child is that a hearing test is fun! Nothing is painful, and the hearing test is like playing a game.

No. We only give therapy/rehabilitation to children/adults who use hearing aids or cochlear implants. But you are more than welcome to contact us for a referral.

How often should I test my/my children’s hearing?

It is important to make sure that your child meets the developmental milestones for speech/language development. If there is a developmental delay, take him/her for a hearing evaluation.

For adults with a hearing loss, it is recommended that you get your hearing tested annually. This is to enable us to monitor your hearing loss or changes in your hearing health, and to adjust your hearing aids accordingly.

There is a broad range of technology, ranging from entry level to top end technology. We recommend that you discuss your lifestyle requirements and budget with the audiologist during your appointment. This will help in the process of designing your tailor made hearing solutions.

I already wear hearing aids. Can I still go for a hearing test?

If you have a question about the effectiveness of your hearing aids, visit an audiologist. It may be that there are some changes to your hearing loss, or that your hearing aids need adjustment.

Can I trial hearing aids before I buy them?

Absolutely. Contact us for an appointment.
