Appropriate for testing children from 30 months through to five years of age.
Your child is conditioned to perform a play activity (e.g. dropping a block in a bucket) whenever they hear a sound. Once the child is conditioned, threshold of hearing can be determined by decreasing signal intensity. This test is usually performed under headphones to obtain ear- and frequency-specific information.
