What is a Hearing Assessment?
A hearing assessment is an evaluation of the function of the peripheral auditory system by visually examining the outer ear, evaluating the middle ear using an immittance audiometer, and assessing cochlear function with otoacoustic emissions. Behavioral audiometry is also performed, using Conditioned Play Audiometry (CPA) or Conventional Audiometry, depending on the age and developmental level of the patient.
Who conducts the Hearing Assessment?
At AudioLogic all hearing assessments are performed by a Doctor of Audiology.
How old does my child need to be to have a hearing assessment at AudioLogic?
Hearing assessments can be performed for children aged 4 years and older.
How long does the hearing assessment take?
We allow 45 minutes for the hearing assessment appointment. After the test, the audiologist will review the results and recommendations with you or the child's parent/guardian.
How do I make an appointment?
We accept direct referrals from physicians, teachers, speech-language pathologists, psychologists or occupational therapists. Adults and parents/guardians of children may also self-refer for a hearing assessment based on their own concerns or the suggestion of a healthcare professional.
You may request an appointment by clicking "Request an Appointment" below or by calling 226-344-1113. You will be given an appointment and we will provide intake forms to complete including a case history questionnaire and consent forms to disclose and release information as needed. These forms should be completed prior to the appointment.
How can I pay for the hearing assessment?
Payment is due at the time of the test. The assessment may be paid for by cash, debit or credit card. Unfortunately, OHIP does not cover this testing. Please contact your insurance company to find out if your benefits will allow reimbursement of our fees.
