Visual Reinforcement Audiometry

A visual reinforcement audiometry determines the faintest tones a child can hear at frequencies from low to high. Ear phones, sound booths and calibrated speakers are ways this audiometry can be conducted. A child reacts to sound by turning toward it and is rewarded through a visual sign (i.e. lights or another visual reinforcement or reward). This type of audiometry is used on a child from the ages of 6 months to 2 years.
