International standards define normal hearing threshold levels (HTLs) and many studies describe speech recognition in noise (SRN) for adults. Less has been published on these characteristics for children. This study aims to establish ranges of HTLs and SRN for otologically normal 7-year-olds. Air conduction HTLs were measured in 189 7-year-olds within an audiometric booth. Speech recognition was measured adaptively for BKB sentences in noise presented binaurally through headphones, determining… CONTINUE READING
