An audiogram is used to graph responses to sounds and speech during certain hearing tests. The examples on an illustrated audiogram show the types and levels of sounds. Hearing levels are categorized to indicate the amount of speech and sounds that can be heard.

General categories can be expressed as:. Test results are usually recorded on a non-illustrated audiogram. Testing is done across frequencies, but most speech sounds occur between low deep pitches Hz and high squeaky pitches Hz. They range from soft sounds such as whispers to loud sounds like sirens.

The softest sounds a child hears at each frequency are plotted on the graph. Degrees of hearing are measured fammiliar to dB which is the range of hearing from normal to a profound loss. There are specific audiogram symbols for the right and left ear, earphones or speakers, and hearing aids or cochlear implants.

Speech and environmental sounds below those symbols are fsmiliar sounds heard by the individual being tested. The speech sounds on the audiogram are only approximations.

Speech sounds become louder or softer intensity as the speaker and listener get closer or further away from one another. The pictures on the audiogram show where a sound might typically happen. The actual sound for these examples could vary and occur across other nearby frequencies too. How a listener responds also depends on the loudness and distance from the sound.

Families new to hearing loss have much to consider and learn. The audiogram is one report for showing the sounds and speech most accessible to the child. Parents can discuss with the audiologist possible next steps based on the audiogram results. If a child gets a device, parents are anxious to know what he hears. Hearing with an implant or hearing aid can be demonstrated with other types of testing and computer checks.

Sometimes listening results with a device are compared to unaided responses on an audiogram to demonstrate changes in hearing. A number or a level is just one measure but audiologists can help the family know what responses to expect. Families often worry about how to communicate with their child while waiting to conduct further testing, explore services or obtain devices.

The ways they were communicating, playing and interacting before the hearing test can continue!
