Hearing Screening and Hearing Aids

Has 11 years experience.

If a student is wearing a hearing aide in one ear, do you only test the ear without a hearing aid? Why is this? And if so, what’s the best way to place the earphone on the ear to be tested?

We typically don't test a child with a hearing aid as they are being followed by doctor.

Same as KPRN! I note on their form that they are currently under the care of a specialist 🙂

Same....they are already being followed by a specialist. Same for documented extreme vision issues. I have a couple of kiddos that even with correction vision is still not 20/20. I just call parents and ask when last exam was and make a note of it.
