Ensuring a valid test result

January 1, 0001

  • We recommend supervising adults download the Sound Scouts app and view the instructional video prior to involving the child. When you are ready to test the child ensure they have eaten and been to the toilet. The adult needs to fill in some details about the child and then complete a short, simple, game-based exercise. The adult is then required to supervise the child while they play. Tell the child that they need to listen carefully and respond when they hear the sounds. If they can’t hear the sound they should continue to listen and the sound will get louder. Adults should also ensure the child does not tap the screen randomly. If the child is tapping randomly then instruct them to listen carefully.
