Welcome Parents and Caregivers!
We’re so glad you’ve decided to test your child’s hearing with Sound Scouts. Our clinically proven app is supported by the Department of Health and was developed in collaboration with the National Acoustic Laboratories, the research arm of Hearing Australia.
The Sound Scouts hearing check comes in the form of a fun, interactive mobile game, so children don’t even know they’re being tested. After the test is complete, you will receive a report outlining your child’s results, as well as the next steps to take if an issue is detected. Two fail results indicating an inner ear issue can be used as a referral to Hearing Australia.
Children use their hearing to learn about the world around them and develop communication skills. The impact of hearing loss on a developing child can be significant, so the sooner issues are detected, and treatment or management is provided, the better the outcomes will be for a child with hearing loss.
Hearing issues can develop at any age, so it’s important to screen your child’s hearing regularly.
