Why Sound Scouts?

1 in 10 children and 1 in 3 adults suffer from hearing loss, which left undetected can affect learning, socialising and overall quality of life. Collaborating with the National Acoustic Laboratories, we created an online hearing test app that delivers an immediate report, including next steps if a hearing loss is detected.

Hearing issues can develop at any time across the first five years of life and onwards but it’s particularly important to test kids before they start school.


What do our users think?

Teachers, parents and healthcare professionals have seen the benefits of Sound Scouts firsthand.
It is fantastic to have access to something like Sound Scouts, a free hearing test that is evidence-based and doesn’t require teachers to travel long distances.

Even when I knew that Summer had speech problems, I didn’t really think it would affect her too much at school. However, seeing the hearing test results on the screen for myself after she had played Sound Scouts, it brought home the importance of the situation, and made it easier for me to accept that Summer would need a hearing aid to help her hear in the classroom.
