Audiology Benefits From Hearing Screening

Government recommendations are that school entry children are tested for hearing. However, screening can be costly and complex to organise.

SchoolScreener® enables providers to offer screening, without the need to use specialists for that screening. Providers using SchoolScreener® Hearing use Band 2s and 3s with full clinical reporting to audiological leads and provider management, including automated, locality-wide audit and KPI reporting.

With the software, SchoolScreener® Hearing, you'll receive an audiometer and earphones, sized for children. Annual calibration of equipment is included. All you need to provide is a laptop. Alternatively, you can use your current equipment with SchoolScreener® District Data to automate your data management, reporting, communications to parents and other administrative requirements, in any language.

Screening criteria can be customised according to local requirements.

With SchoolScreener® District Data, you save time and money by automating administration, set precisely to your organisation's requirements.

How Can it Help Me as an Audiologist/Child Hearing Specialist?

  • SchoolScreener® does not remove the need for clinicians, it simply ensures that Audiologists and child hearing specialists spend their time efficiently – managing hearing problems, rather than carrying out primary screening and administration.
  • Practice staff use a laptop either with our units that plug into the laptop via USB, or your own equipment.
  • Check up to 70 children per day. Then, specialist appointments are offered to screening "fails".
  • Generate letters for parents automatically. Do this on-site for single locations or centrally for multiple locations, using SchoolScreener® District Data.

In summary, SchoolScreener® provides a simple and reliable tool for performing hearing screening programmes.  This means that with suitable training and audiologist overview, primary hearing screening in schools can be delivered by Band 2/3s or school nurses according to locality protocols and requirements.  This frees up audiologists to do the training, oversight of the programme and to manage those who "fail" the screening.
