Our audiology services
Hearing screening

Hearing screening can detect 
most of permanent or temporary
hearing loss

It allows us to determine if further evaluation is needed.

For a worker exposed to noise, a hearing screening is recommended on a regular basis in order to rule out the appearance of potential hearing damage and monitor the risk of aggravation. An audiology referral can be made if needed. In addition, recommendations are issued to properly protect each worker and limit the risks associated with exposure to noise.

For children, it is recommended to have a hearing screening annually since certain problems, such as ear infections and wax plugs, can reappear and produce temporary hearing loss.

If a hearing screening is found to be failed, a full audiological evaluation will be recommended.


Children

Hearing screening in children is important because hearing loss, even slight, can affect learning and language development. An otitis can also cause hearing loss, although this is usually temporary. In addition, a hearing problem can make the child seem inattentive. **

** A hearing screening does not replace a doctor's or speech therapist's request for a comprehensive hearing test. **


In children, a hearing screening allows:

  • To ensure that the external auditory canals are free of cerumen (ear wax).
  • Check that the eardrum has good mobility and that there is no suspected fluid behind it.
  • Determine if your child detects low-intensity sounds.

This activity takes place in the form of games. If the hearing screening fails, the child will be referred to a family doctor, an ENT doctor, or an audiological evaluation will be offered.


Industries

In industry, we offer a hearing screening service via our mobile unit.

Several risks are associated with exposure to noise. Many health impacts result from this. By consulting an audiologist, recommendations will be issued to better protect you from noise.

A hearing screening also allows companies to reduce their potential health and safety costs since they are able to identify workers at risk. Thus, it is possible to make changes to better equip and protect certain workers. It is also possible to assess the effectiveness of workers' hearing protection.


Educational institutions

Audio Logique travels to the school environment to carry out a hearing screening activity. Even mild hearing loss can affect a child's academic progress. In addition, a hearing problem can make the child seem inattentive. As a school director or teaching staff, you can contact us to set up hearing screening at your location via our mobile clinic.
