Why Would My Child Need a Hearing Test?

​If your child is not hearing well, needing the TV up loud, has unclear speech, is not speaking at the same level as other children of the same age, has frequent colds or ear infections, is having difficulty learning to read/spell or becoming disinterested or disruptive in class, they will require a hearing test.

A hearing test is also a routine check before your child starts school (Kindergarten).
