Visual Reinforcement Audiometry (VRA)

An infant (4-6 months and older) or young toddler is placed on your lap and visual indicators are used as a reinforcement system when sounds are presented. Our extensive training allows us to determine whether the child is “hearing” the sounds efficiently. Based on the concept of conditioning, children are rewarded for looking in the direction of sounds or even just eye widening with a visually rewarding event, e.g.- a drumming bear. The test can be completed with sounds coming from a speaker or from earphones.
