Children are assessed by a team of two audiologists who use visual reinforcement techniques or play based on the age of the child. In the audiometric booth, the child is accompanied by a parent and an audiologist. The results of the evaluation are explained directly after this one. A copy of the report is given to the parents on the day of the assessment and another is sent to the referent.
