An audiological assessment is a painless, noninvasive hearing test that measures a person’s ability to hear different sounds, pitches or frequencies. The diagnostic test is performed in a soundproof booth under headphones. The test takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
Following the test, an audiologist will discuss the results and options for treatment, if necessary. Staff with the Hearing and Speech Foundation may become involved in further diagnostic evaluation or therapy treatment.
