520 3# - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc Objective: To create a hearing test useable without the involvement of a clinician or calibrated equipment,<br/>suitable for children aged 5 or older.<br/>Design: The tablet-based app (Sound Scouts) includes tests of speech in quiet, speech in noise and tones<br/>in noise, all embedded in game designed to maintain attention. Data were collected to intelligibilityequalize<br/>the stimuli, establish normative performance, and evaluate the sensitivity with which Sound<br/>Scouts detected known hearing problems and identified their type.<br/>Study sample: Participants were children from age 5 to 14 (394 with normal hearing, 97 with previously<br/>identified hearing loss) and 50 adults with normal hearing.<br/>Results: With pass-fail criteria set such that 98% of children with normal hearing passed Sound Scouts, 85%<br/>of children with hearing loss failed Sound Scouts (after exclusion of children in either group who received<br/>an inconclusive result or had incomplete results). No child with four-frequency average hearing thresholds<br/>of 30 dB HL or greater in their poorer ear passed Sound Scouts. Hearing loss type was correctly identified in<br/>only two-thirds of those cases where the algorithm attempted to identify a single type of loss.<br/>Conclusions: Sound Scouts has specificity and sensitivity sufficiently high to provide hearing screening<br/>around the time children typically enter school.
