helping everyone to hear better

Children’s Services

At Hearbase, we offer diagnostic services for children to help identify any hearing issues they may be experiencing. Our experienced audiologists provide comprehensive assessments in a welcoming and friendly environment, using the latest equipment and techniques to ensure accurate results.

At what age can you test a child's hearing?

We can routinely test children from the age of three years and can make special arrangements to test younger children and babies.

How is the hearing test conducted for children?

We use age-appropriate methods and techniques to conduct hearing tests for children. Depending on the age of the child, we may use headphones or speakers to deliver sounds and ask the child to respond in a certain way, such as raising their hand or pointing to a picture.

    What if I have received conflicting opinions about my child's hearing?

    If you have received conflicting opinions about your child’s hearing, we can give you a definitive assessment. Our specially trained audiologist will provide a comprehensive hearing evaluation to ensure that you and your family receive the highest standard of clinical care.

    Is the testing process painful or uncomfortable for children?

    No, the testing process is painless and non-invasive. We use gentle, age-appropriate methods and techniques to ensure that children feel comfortable and at ease during the testing process.

    Expert Hearing Services for Children

    We offer comprehensive hearing tests for children as young as three years old. For younger children and babies, we can make special arrangements to ensure their hearing is thoroughly tested.

    We can help diagnose developmental and speech delays, confirm normal hearing in cases of family history of hearing loss, and diagnose middle ear disorders like glue ear. If you’ve received conflicting opinions on your child’s hearing, our assessments will give you a definitive answer. Trust us for expert care for your child’s hearing needs.
