Everyone Health delivers routine hearing tests for children in school to identify any problems early on in their development. Although hearing problems during childhood are rare, early testing makes sure that any problems are picked up as early as possible. An early diagnosis will also help ensure you and your child have access to any special support services you may need.
Children’s hearing tests are organised through your child’s school.
On the portal there is an option to opt out for your child’s hearing test. However, we strongly recommend that, even if you do not suspect any hearing difficulties, that the test is undergone, this is to rule out any hearing difficulties as early diagnosis is important for your child’s health and education; ensuring appropriate referral and treatment.
