Pure Tone Audiometry

The most common and accurate form of measurement for testing youngsters, pure tone audiometry determines the softest sounds a child can hear. Set in a controlled environment in the surroundings of a soundproof room, a series of varying pitches are played via earphones, with the child signalling or pressing a button to acknowledge when a noise is heard. This examination indicates the level of hearing loss suffered by recording the child’s pure tone threshold on an audiogram.
