Additional Information: The tests that are needed to complete an audiological evaluation may not vary, but the way I test a child on the spectrum or other children/adults with special needs does. If at all possible, I like to talk with parents or the referring professional ahead of time so I have some idea of what the concerns are and more information about the child and how she/he responds to new situations and to being touched. It also helps to determine the amount of time or time of day for scheduling. I may or may not test the first or sometimes second visit. I may just talk with mom or mom and dad while we sit in the sound suite in chairs or on the floor or just outside the booth. It is an observation and learning time for me about what is needed and what techniques might work best for that particular child. It is also a time for the child to get used to me and the room(s) where the testing will be completed. I rely on the parents to help me learn what will work best for their child. Test results may be obtained very quickly or testing may begin slowly and be modified with objects/toys from home. The child may hold part of the equipment him/herself. As with any child, I need to administer the tests that I have in my battery in such a way as to get the information that is needed to rule out or confirm hearing loss as an additional factor in management of that particular child. Everything I do from the light in the room, to the tone of my voice or the speed of my movements has to be monitored, modified and adapted. If within a reasonable time, with serial testing, we are still unable to answer questions regarding the status of hearing, referral for a sedated ABR/OAE would be indicated to provide additional information.
