Preschool Hearing Tests
After the COVID restrictions last year put a halt to face-to-face events, we were thrilled to be able to re-launch the Pre-School Hearing Screening project again for 2021.
The first session for this year was held on Saturday 8th May at Hampton Primary School and was fully subscribed, with a wait-list already set-up for our next date later in the year. Forty-two children were tested. Thirty-two passed and seven were referred to their family doctor as they had a hearing loss measured on the day. Investigations into the health of their middle ear and further audiology testing in 1-2 months to monitor their hearing levels were recommended. Two children were either unable to be fully assessed on the day or had results that suggested a permanent hearing problem. They were recommended for immediate diagnostic audiology.
