Children and adults with cerebral palsy are prone to have middle ear infections due to their difficulties in feeding and swallowing, thus requiring the need to monitor the status of the middle ear. Early identification of conditions arising from the middle ear allows for prompt treatment and prevents associated hearing loss. Additionally, a periodical hearing evaluation is required as hearing may deteriorate with ageing.

The CPAS Audiology Clinic conducts hearing screening, diagnostic testing, and management for individuals with hearing related issues.

 

Screening Services include the following:

Pure Tone Audiometry for three frequencies (500Hz, 1KHz & 2KHz), Tympanometry and OAE.
