Difference Between Hearing Screening and Hearing Evaluation
A hearing screening is a quick test that you will pass or fail. If you pass, then you show no signs of hearing loss. If you fail, you will need more in-depth hearing testing. You should see someone trained to do hearing screenings, like an audiologist, nurse, or teacher.
A hearing evaluation is a complete hearing test. You should see an audiologist for this type of testing. The audiologist can talk to you about
- the type of hearing loss you have;
- how severe it is;
- what might have caused your hearing loss; and
- possible treatment options.
