Hearing Screening for Reception Children

  • Date published:

  • Author: gilliangillies

Every school aged child in Coventry will have the opportunity to have a hearing screening test.

This test is carried out by the School Nursing Team in school. The screening will consist of:

  • Your child will wear a set of headphones.
  • Quiet sounds will play into the headphones through a listening game.

Children may then be referred to the Audiology Department for further tests if necessary.

If you have any concerns about your child’s hearing you can self-refer to audiology on 0300 2000011.
