Question

What should I do when I receive audiograms that do not provide any information about aided hearing?

 

 

Answer

Tell the audiologist that you need to understand what the aided hearing is because that is how the child has to function.  Specifically say to the audiologist that you need the following: an aided audiogram right ear alone, left ear alone; speech perception for the right ear alone, the left ear alone, and binaural; at normal and soft conversation; in quiet and in noise.  You need to go back to the audiologist if you are not getting the information.  Without that information, you will not know what to expect from a child with a hearing loss.
