What happens at a test?

At Shout Hearing all hearing tests are done face to face with a university trained audiologist, in a sound treated room (rather than a small booth).

  • Each ear is tested separately on both your perception of sound and speech discrimination.
  • Our audiologists will conduct Otoscopy, TympanometryAcoustic Reflexes, Audiometry and Speech Testing.
  • Your communication goals that are individual to your lifestyle and needs are assessed.
  • Your results are explained and we work with you to tailor a individualised rehabilitation plan that will help you to achieve your communication goals.
  • We build a comprehensive case history of hearing and any medical information relevant to your hearing health.
  • We will write a comprehensive report of your hearing test results and our recommendations for your GP or ENT.

Family and friends are encouraged to come along to the appointment to offer support; your family and friends will be an important part of your success.
