Hearing loss may happen at any age but is more common as you get older. Regular screenings will help you keep track of your hearing and get help when you need it. The Communication Disorders Clinic of Mercy College is providing free hearing screenings Appointments at 5 minute intervals. You must register
WHAT TO EXPECT: This hearing screening is accomplished by presenting different tones that are critical for hearing important speech sounds through earphones to each ear. The participants are asked to raise their hand to indicate when they hear the sounds. Although these sounds are very soft, they are presented at a loudness which we know normal hearing ears can hear. GOAL: The goal is to identify participants with a possible hearing loss that may interfere with their communication skills so that the participant can be referred to the appropriate medical / health care professionals to take appropriate action to further assess and treat any hearing problems.
