My child is going for a Hearing Test (Visual Reinforced Audiometry) in hospital

In this video two toddlers come to hospital for a hearing test. Different sounds and toys are used to test the child's hearing. Their (grand)parents ask questions to find out if it's a problem if their child finds it hard to sit still and what it means when their child doesn't respond to a sound. This video was developed in partnership with the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
