Universal new-born hearing screening progams, are very successful in detecting children with significant hearing loss at birth, and who can benefit from early intervention.
However, only half of children starting school with permanent hearing loss will have been detected by the standard new-born hearing screen test; meaning a substantial number of children with permanent hearing loss are not identified when they start school.
SchoolScreener® is a robust system that allows hearing loss to be identified (without requiring clinical knowledge to screen) so our children can hear and learn to the best of their abilities. SchoolScreener® also detects temporary hearing loss due to glue ear and allows this to be managed appropriately.
Using SchoolScreener® hearing screening can be either delivered through an interactive game or other options.
It's quick, cost effective and doesn't require clinical knowledge to use, that's why users love SchoolScreener®!
