Adult Hearing Assessment

Adult Hearing AssessmentThis is more than a simple hearing test. We use specific questions to gather information about your symptoms and history of ear and hearing healthcare to date. We carefully inspect the outer ear and eardrum for signs of pathology, before testing your middle ear function.

We measure your hearing levels, establishing the type and severity of hearing problems (see ‘What is an Audiogram’ below), as well as your ability to understand speech. The results are analysed, explained to you and communicated to other healthcare professionals.

You do not need a referral for a hearing assessment, although Medicare rebates apply with a referral from a doctor. As trusted Audiologists, we work closely with GPs, Ear Nose and Throat Specialists and Neurologists to ensure you receive the best care.

Please bring any previous tests and reports. This information is important for comparison and planning of further management.

Paediatric Hearing Assessment

Paediatric Hearing AssessmentHearing assessments for children are a specialist area and must be done by an experienced Audiologist. We use specific questions to gather information relating to your concerns, your child’s history of general health and development, as well as ear health and hearing healthcare to date.

We carefully inspect the outer ear and eardrum for signs of pathology, before testing how the middle ear is functioning (checking for glue ear, fluid behind the eardrum and perforation of the eardrum).

We measure your child’s hearing levels, establishing the type and severity of hearing problems, as well their ability to understand speech. The results are analysed, explained to you and communicated to other healthcare professionals.

At Medical Audiology, we have the equipment and experience to test children’s hearing reliably, regardless of their age, developmental level or additional needs. Below is a list of techniques we apply. Please note that the actual technique we use will depend on the child’s developmental level, and we may use multiple techniques or adapt them for your child’s specific needs.
