Tests for screening for hearing loss in children about to start school

Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To investigate the accuracy of hearing screening tests, individually or in combination, used in children at or around school entry age (four to eight years old), excluding children with known hearing loss and those unable to perform the test due to significant developmental delay.

A secondary objective is to assess the relative diagnostic accuracy of different hearing screening tests when directly compared (within the same study).
