Sound Scouts is the children’s hearing check designed to make testing easy. Sound Scouts incorporates the science of a hearing test in a fun game. The children don’t even know they are being tested.
An estimated 1 in 10 children are held back at school by hearing loss. Hearing issues are a common cause of speech, learning and behavioural problems so it is important for all children to have their hearing tested. If a child struggles to hear, they’ll also struggle to learn. The World Health Organisation recommends children have their hearing tested when they start school*.
Developed in collaboration with the National Acoustic Laboratories, Sound Scouts provides an instant report and guidance on next steps if a problem is detected.
