HearSay offers Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) testing. This test determines how the inner ear and brain pathways are responding to sound. The test is often used in babies and young children where typical testing cannot be completed. The ABR is also used to rule out hearing loss along the brainstem or brain pathway.
Auditory Brainstem Response testing is an non-behavioural test which means the person being tested does not need to respond to the sounds. Responses are obtained by measuring the brain’s response to sound through brainwave measurements. This test is often used for testing babies and children who would not otherwise be able to give reliable responses when they hear a sound.
This test is most often found in the hospital setting which requires a referral by your doctor. The wait for such testing can be lengthy. HearSay is pleased to offer this testing which can provide results more quickly.
