The National Hearing Test, a functional Hearing Test administered by phone and developed with National Institute of Health funding, is a great start in diagnosing hearing loss in one or both ears. While a remarkable advancement in drawing attention to hearing loss nationwide and conducting initial screenings, the telephone-based test has certain limits. It is not a substitute for the types of complete hearing tests performed by Hearing Specialists . When test participants receive a score outside the normal range or have specific questions, they’ll need the assistance of a local provider. The hearing specialists at Hearing Health Solutions – Columbus OH Hearing Test Experts are available to conduct more in-depth hearing testing and provide personalized advice to Columbus area residents who want local help after completing the National Hearing Test.

The National Hearing Test launched in May 2014 and is available free for the remainder of May as part of Better Speech and Hearing Month. Normally, the test will cost eight dollars. Because it is phone-based, the test is designed as a speech in noise test. It is best regarded as a screening for functional hearing – the ability to hear in everyday situations. Each ear is tested separately and gets its own score of “Normal”, “Slightly Below Normal” or “Poor”. The recommendations given after the test steer test takers to local hearing specialists. The website states, “If your results from the National Hearing Test were “marginal or below normal,” you should make an appointment for a complete hearing evaluation by a certified hearing professional. Even if your results are in the “normal” range but you still have concerns about your hearing, we encourage you to seek a complete hearing evaluation as well.”

Hearing Health Solutions is available for comprehensive hearing testing for residents of Columbus and surrounding areas. They are delighted to answer the follow-up questions from any person who took the National Hearing Test and to administer a more in-depth hearing assessment. The publicity generated by the release of the National Hearing Test is bringing much needed attention to the subject of hearing loss. As awareness increases so will the need for skilled local hearing specialists to evaluate and treat individual cases of hearing loss. The hearing care team at Hearing Health Solutions is excited about positioning themselves as a primary provider of hearing testing and hearing loss treatment in Columbus OH.

It is important to note that to get accurate results from the National Hearing Test, a land-line (not cellular) telephone is required. Test takers will also have to have the finger dexterity and coordination to key in over fifty numbers into the telephone’s number pad. For anyone who currently suspects hearing loss or would have difficulty completing the screening, the hearing specialists at Hearing Health Solutions advise calling to schedule an in-house hearing evaluation.
