Getting ready for a hearing test  - 'GO' games 

You can help us by playing a few simple games with your child to help them prepare for a hearing test. Here are two games you can play.

You need bricks (or ring on a stick) and a box:

  • Put the box (or stick) in front of your child
  • Instruct your child to 'wait' and 'listen' until you say GO
  • Let them put a brick in the box (or ring on a stick) on your command of GO
  • Repeat until your child waits, listens and performs on your command
  • You can then try this game with your mouth covered by your hand. In this way your child must listen for your voice
  • You can vary the intensity of your voice from loud to quiet.

You need bricks (or ring on a stick), a box and a drum:

  • Put the box (or stick) in front of your child 
  • Instruct your child to 'wait' and 'listen' until you make a sound such as a clap or bang a drum
  • Let them put the brick in the box (or ring on the stick) in response to the sound
  • Repeat until your child waits, listens and performs the action in response to each sound you make
  • You can try this game when they cannot see you make the sound. Sit or stand behind them so they cannot see you make the noise. In this way your child must listen for a sound before performing the action
  • You can vary the intensity of the sound from loud to quiet 

Playing these games teaches your child to wait and listen for a sound and then perform an action. It can really help us get an accurate hearing test. If your child does well with a particular toy at home, why not bring it with you on your next appointment.
