All hearing assessments will be individually tailored on a personal needs basis with the goal to complete a standardised test battery to get as much information on the auditory/vestibular system as possible and hopefully, make a diagnosis on the same day. Depending on the client's developmental, attention and fatigue levels sometimes the assessment has to be split across two appointments. Full assessment reports can be provided at an extra cost for educational needs. Recommendations for onward referrals to other health care professionals i.e. GPs, ENT and Speech and Language Therapy, to aid a diagnosis and treatment will also be provided, if needed.
