Listening Study

STEP TWO

Test/Evaluation Description

Your listening perception in both air and bone conduction will be tested much like a standard audio exam but with a few differences. A series of tones or long beeps are played through both air conduction and bone conduction headphones. Results are indicated on a gragh, so you can see your listening curve or indication of the frequencies you are receiving and missing. Spacial Orientation, Laterality and Tonal Perception are part of the auditory processing evaluationl. The whole process takes about a forty-five minutes to an hour including the evaluation. The evaluation will indicate your needs and help you to understand how you are listening, what it means for you, and how the program can help you. Most clients are fascinated by the process and outcome. Some people are just curious to see how they or their children are listening and may take up the program at a later date.

 

Out-of-town clients will be given detailed questionaires to fill out for initial consultation in lieu of listening test. One 15 minute phone or Skype call for the complete consultation takes place after receipt of questionaires.

 

Listening Test and Evaluation or Home Consultation: $150
