A comprehensive audiological evaluation includes several tests of the auditory system. A measure of hearing sensitivity is conducted in a soundproof booth, through earphones.
An audiological evaluation provides information as to whether an individual has normal hearing sensitivity or if there is a hearing deficit. Results of the hearing test can provide information about whether the loss is due to mechanical involvement of the middle ear structures (conductive hearing loss), or if it involves the cochlea, auditory nerve (sensorineural hearing loss), or whether there is the possibility of auditory processing disorder (APD).
