    Hearing Difficulty

    The hearing handicap inventory was developed in 1982, by Ventry and Weinstein. This is a self-assessment tool containing 25 questions aimed to assess the impact of hearing loss in the emotional and social-situational adjustments of hearing impaired adults. You may take the quiz below in order to gain better understanding of how your hearing may be impacting your life.

    The 25-item Dizziness Handicap Inventory (DHI) was developed to evaluate the self-perceived handicapping effects imposed by vestibular system disease. This may also further assist your independent audiologist in better understanding of your symptoms, and will assist in helping us guide you along your pathway of rehabilitation and care.

    Auditory Processing

    This helps to identify symptoms of auditory processing deficits based on one's daily life experiences. Your responses will be reviewed by an independent audiologist with a special interest in auditory processing. They will contact you with an evaluation of your responses. If further APD testing is recommended, we will discuss this with you and if required, set up an appointment for a comprehensive assessment.
