Central Rivers AEA audiologists and audiometrists provide hearing screenings for infants, young children and K-2nd grade and 8th-grade students in schools, all at no cost to parents.
Hearing screenings and hearing tests help to determine those children with normal hearing, those who may need further testing to determine hearing status and those with hearing loss. Early detection of hearing loss can ensure that appropriate services and supports are put in place to meet the unique needs of the child.
Sound Booth Screenings
Some infants and toddlers are best tested in a sound booth. When you come to a Central Rivers AEA sound booth for a hearing test, you will be in the booth with your child, so if you need to bring additional children with you, a second adult is needed. Sound booths are located in our three agency offices.

Annual Hearing Screenings in Schools
Central Rivers AEA audiometrists perform yearly hearing screenings in:
- Accredited public preschools
- Head Starts
- Public and non-public schools for students in elementary grades
- As needed if there are concerns about a child’s hearing. Please reach out to your school’s nurse to connect with the audiologist assigned to your child’s district or school.
Contact your child’s school to learn when screenings are scheduled. If your child does not attend a public preschool and/or you believe your child requires a hearing screening, call the number above to discuss your concerns.
