Get a quick ear health screen by a qualified audiologist before heading back to school!
Telethon Speech & Hearing is offering a School Holiday Special for hearing screenings* in the final week of the school holidays.
A full audiological assessment would usually cost $125 or more, so take up this limited-time opportunity to get valuable, professional, advice for your child.
Bookings are essential with limited appointment times available.
Please note that this special is for children aged four (4) and older.
Telethon Speech & Hearing: Back to School Ear Health Screenings
Dates: Friday 22nd January 2021 (Wembley) or Friday 29th January 2021 (Cockburn)
Discounted price: $20
To make a booking please call (08) 9387 9888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Whilst not a full hearing test, a quick ear health screening will help to decide if a full hearing assessment is warranted for your child.
Difference between a hearing screening and hearing test/assessment:
A hearing screening is a simple pass-fail evaluation, often performed outside a hearing clinic. A variety of tools may be used, from a tablet with headphones to a portable audiometer or even a questionnaire. The person who conducts the screening will be a qualified hearing professional. He or she will be able to tell you whether a full hearing assessment is recommended, in which case you will be offered a hearing test in a clinic.
A hearing test is a more comprehensive assessment that occurs in a hearing clinic. A hearing professional will ask some questions about situations in your life where you may be noticing that communication isn’t where you’d like it to be, look inside your ears, perform a test in a sound booth and explain the results to you. If you have treatable hearing loss, you will be offered a pair of hearing aids to take home and trial in your daily life.
