This is a 3 day introductory course to Paediatric Assessment (Behavioural Testing). The course is for Audiologists who are beginning to work in Paediatric Testing, or for those who would like an update on current test protocols.
The course will be of interest to those wishing to gain an insight into Paediatric Audiology and who may be considering running their own service. It is also ideal for those who are preparing to start the BAA Higher Training Scheme module on Paediatric Assessment, since it covers the pre-requisite theoretical knowledge for this module.
The course covers all the main behavioural tests, including speech discrimination testing and VRA using insert earphones and bone conduction. It also includes introduction to history taking, planning the session, calibration and room set-up, management decisions and report writing.
During the course delegates will receive appropriate national guidelines for Paediatric Testing.
The course does not cover objective testing, advanced practice or assessment of complex cases. Please see below for the full agenda.
