Does your Child have a hearing problem that may interfere with his/her speech and language development
The Hearing Game has been designed for the Parents and Kindergarten Staff as a very simple tool to detect the
hearing problem in young children as early as possible, because this is very important for the successful medical
treatment and rehabilitation.
This hearing screening is designed as a simple Hearing Game to be played by the Child. Before that the
Training is needed to make sure that the Child can recognize the animal voices and their pictures displayed on
the Tablet screen.
Natural (not artificial tones) sounds of Cow (500 Hz), Rooster (1500 Hz) and Bird (4000 Hz), calibrated in intensity and
frequency spectrum are presented to the Child’s Left or Right ear through the earphones and the Child has to touch the
correct animal picture on the Tablet screen. The correct/incorrect responses and the reaction time are recorded in the
Tablet memory and/or SD card.
The testing sounds cover the frequency range important for normal speech and language development.
A special Training is provided to make sure that the Child is familiar with the animal pictures and their voices. Each Tablet
can be calibrated together with the earphones by the user with the help of the normal hearing Child.
The test results can be recorded in the PC using a special free program or can be automatically transferred to the Data
Base nominated by the Local Authority if the Tablet has the Internet connection available.
This HEARING GAME has the two versions:
DEMO – free to use for 7 days and FULL – priced $2.99 USD to use for unlimited time.
It is recommended to try first the DEMO version, because the FULL version cannot be refunded.
The aim of the Hearing Game with the Tablet is to alert and identify areas of concern, not to diagnose in detail the
cause of the problem.
1. There is no effective screening system for early identification of hearing problems in young children. The Neonatal
Screening Test is expensive and it addresses only a very small part of the general hearing problems in children.
Statistically only 2 newborn babies in 1000 has a hearing problem ( 0.2%), while by the time the child attends school, 2
children in 10 ( depends upon the country considered ) has a hearing problem ( 20%).
2. This dramatic increase from 0.2% to 20% results, among other reasons, from the poor and inefficient hearing screening
methods applied to the babies, toddlers and the pre-school children.
3. Typically there is not enough medical centres and other services involved in frequent hearing assessment of a very large
group of young children. These centres cannot be run economically, because about 45% of children fail to cooperate with
the tester in an unfamiliar environment and they have to return again to complete the test. On the other hand the so called
home visits enlisting trained nurses to test the children’s hearing at home, are insufficient in numbers and service
frequency. In some countries they are not existent at all.
4. The aim of the introduction of the Hearing Game is to shift the clinical strategy of early detection of hearing problems in
children to the people who are the most interested in child’s well being and development i.e. to the Parents. Of course the
staff in various Child Care Centres, Kindergartens etc. can also be involved. The test can be conveniently conducted as a
game at home without the time pressure to complete in one sitting. It can be completed over a few days when the child is
willing to cooperate and repeated many times as the child grows older to monitor the child’s hearing status.
5. Early detection and correction of hearing problems in young children is extremely important. It is well known, that the
delay in detection and correction of the hearing problem by one month may result in a one year delay in the child’s general
development. Therefore early detection of the hearing problem in children should be effectively combined with corrective
intervention and medical treatment.
6. The Hearing Game also allows observance of the child’s listening, correlation, coordination skills and the reaction time
which may be poor and not necessarily related to a hearing deficiency. This may help indicate a need to contact the
appropriate medical specialist at an early stage of the child’s development.
7. Introduction of the Hearing Game may help to create an effective screening system for early detection of hearing
impairments in children, facilitate an early evaluation and correction of the hearing problems.
ATTENTION: this program can be used only after reading and accepting DISCLAIMER conditions.
DISCLAIMER: evaluation of the hearing using the Tablet does not replace a professional hearing test, but the results can indicate
whether or not it may be worth seeking early advice from a hearing care professional, what is extremely important to eliminate or to
stop further development of the hearing loss.
Mobilemedico does not accept any responsibility for the misuse of or incorrect interpretation of the Hearing Game played with the
Tablet, incorrect Tablet, calibration done by the user, lack of Child's cooperation, poor hygienic conditions of the earphones resulting
in possible ear infections and hearing loss, inaccurate placement of the noise attenuating headset over the ears fitted with the insert
earphones, incorrect operating of the Tablet, it's poor technical conditions resulting in unstable voice output and/or loud clicks.
Mobilemedico does not accept any responsibility for any losses related to this program application and lack of the proper action of
the testing person in case of finding the hearing loss.
