Often children will perform quite well when testing in the booth. They have often completed the Audiological tasks many times before and understand what is expected of them. However, observing the child in their everyday listening environment gives the audiologist a chance to see how that child uses the auditory skills in a more natural setting. Are they hearing their name when called, can they overhear conversations around them, can they hear in a group or do they perform better in a one on one situation etc. Observations made in the classroom may also help us make very specific recommendations regarding classroom accommodations.
