Signs of Hearing Impairment
In some cases, hearing loss is sudden and immediately noticeable. Still, it happens quite often that the affected person does not notice his or her hearing loss, as it slowly declines over a long period of time. This is why people you interact with might take notice of your impairment before you even realize it yourself!
Do you have difficulty discerning the words when people are speaking to you?
Do you often ask people to repeat themselves?
Do people’s speech sound like mumbles at times?
Do you find it difficult to clearly perceive certain high pitch voices (often women’s or children’s)?
Do you have a hard time following conversations in a noisy environment?
Do you find yourself avoiding social settings because of your hearing?
Do you watch television or listen to the radio at higher than normal volume?
Do you find yourself inadequately answering or responding to people?
Does hearing impairment run in your family?
Is hearing impairment a possible side effect of medications you’re taking?
Do you work in or are exposed to a noisy environment for extended periods?
Do you consistently or intermittently hear ringing or other phantom noises (also known as tinnitus)?
If you’ve answered yes to one or more of the above questions, contact us to schedule a consultation with an audiologist at one of our 5 New Brunswick locations.
School Aged Hearing Testing
Argus Audiology is fully equipped to perform hearing tests and evaluations on school-aged children (ages 5-17). No referrals are required. Testing school-aged children is very similar to an adult hearing test. The child is seated in a soundproof booth and is asked to indicate when soft sounds are heard and may be asked to repeat words.
Pediatric hearing testing at Argus Audiology is a fast alternative to having your child’s hearing tested at the hospital. Hospital waiting lists are long and it may take several months to be seen and called for an appointment. If you are concerned about your child’s ability to hear, please contact us at any one of our 5 locations to book an appointment with a certified audiologist.
A hearing screening is a quick simple test to determine how well you hear different sounds. This type of hearing test is ideal for pre-employment applications and as part of medicals for professional training for RCMP, firefighters, flight schools, air traffic control etc. Your hearing screening and can be faxed, mailed, or emailed to you and your employer at request.
A hearing screening does not require a referral.
