Sound Scouts recognised that mobile game technology could hold the key to creating an accessible hearing test solution for school aged children. Partnering with NAL we created an app that provides parents with direct access to a hearing check for their children.
“What has been missing in the hearing health-care system is a low-cost, easily administered, reliable test of hearing that can be widely applied to children around school entry so that no child has to go through years of school at a disadvantage to others because of unmanaged hearing loss.” Professor Dillon Director, National Acoustic Laboratories.
Since inception Sound Scouts has been honoured with multiple national and international awards celebrating both our innovative approach to hearing screening and our creative use of technology.
