Hearing Tests ASL
The first step to improving communication.
Hearing loss doesn’t have to stop you from you from enjoying what you love. For over 80 years, we’ve been empowering Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians to overcome barriers to participation. We are here to help you understand how well you are hearing using state-of-the-art equipment and explore the solutions that are right for you.
When to get your hearing tested ASL
One in three adult Canadians experience hearing loss. Hearing loss can affect your ability to communicate. This may impact you emotionally and socially as well as cause safety concerns. We recommend getting a hearing test if you have one or more of these signs of hearing loss, or it has been one year since your last hearing test.
- You have noticed a change in your hearing
- Speech sounds muffled
- You often ask people to repeat things
- You are turning the television or radio up louder than usual
- You have difficulty hearing on the telephone
- You have trouble following conversations, especially in a crowd or noisy place
- You have ringing in one or both ears
- Friends or loved ones have suggested getting your hearing tested – more than once
If you already wear hearing aids, annual visits help monitor your hearing loss and provides an opportunity for your audiologist to assess the effectiveness of your hearing aids.

What to expect at a hearing test ASL
At your appointment, our staff will ask questions about your medical history, hearing challenges and sound environments. They will check your ears for wax buildup and perform a range of tests to assess your hearing capabilities using state-of-the-art equipment.
The test results are recorded on a graph called an audiogram. Following the hearing test, we’ll review the results with you. If you have a hearing loss, there’s no need for alarm. We’ll help you explore all your options and may recommend a hearing aid evaluation. A hearing aid evaluation is an opportunity to discuss specific hearing aid options and how they may help your overall communication.
