How to refer, who is involved and who to contact
Healthcare professionals and schools can refer directly to audiology.
Referrals should be made by referral form or letter stating the reason for the request and the child’s details. The letter should include as much information as possible on:
- the child’s behaviour
- language development
- general development
- the parent’s telephone number is really useful as they operate a reminder service
- if an interpreter is required, please state this clearly
The results of the assessment are passed on to the person who has made the referral. Initial assessments are usually offered within 6 weeks.
Parent/carers who are concerned about a child’s hearing can see their GP, school nurse, health visitor or speech and language therapist.
