Hearing Test

Adult Hearing Assessment

Our hearing assessment is detailed, accurate and comprehensive.

We use a clinical audiometer, tympanometer, DPOAE measurement device and video otoscopy to determine your outer ear, middle ear and inner ear abnormality. All the tests are performed in the highest quality soundproof room available, big enough to fit in a whole family, if required. We conduct a speech test in a quiet environment to understand how the hearing performed in a normal situation. If you experience difficulty hearing in noisy environment, we can perform an additional speech-in-noise test to find out if your hearing is affected by background noises.

Sandgate Hearing aims to provide the most accurate and comprehensive hearing test to help you understand in detail your hearing status. Whether the results are normal or not, our audiologist will be right by your side to provide all the support that you need.

Paediatric Hearing Test

At Sandgate Hearing, we are pleased to offer comprehensive paediatric diagnostic services for children aged 3 and older.

Paediatric hearing assessments involve testing peripheral hearing, including the outer, middle and inner ear. We use a variety of age appropriate objective and subjective measures and include games and activities to engage children while obtaining reliable results. The appointment is approximately 30 minutes. We discuss all results and make appropriate recommendations or referrals immediately after testing is completed. Following the appointment a medical report is also sent out to you and also to your doctor or specialist.

Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) Assessment

Some children may have normal hearing, however their parents or teachers may notice that they still experience difficulties hearing. This may indicate possible auditory processing issues. Central Auditory processing assessment involves a peripheral hearing assessment and tests of auditory processing. The appointment lasts around 2 hours. We discuss the results and make appropriate recommendations immediately after testing is completed.

Following the appointment a comprehensive medical report is sent, which would include appropriate strategies to address auditory processing deficits, if found.

Central Auditory Processing Assessment is suitable for children aged 7 years and older only.

Referrals are welcome but are not necessary to make an appointment.

Custom swim earplugs

Custom Swim Plugs are a worthwhile investment for children who have a history of ear problems. They prevent moisture from entering the ears and further ear infections. A mould of the ears is taken in our clinic and we are able to order the custom plugs in a range of different colours.
