Dear sir, Apart from BERA, please consider performing BOA/VRA testing also. This will help in better diagnosis of hearing loss. With this type of hearing loss, your initial treatment will include use of hearing aids and speech therapy. Thank you.
Hi, Lybrate user, get it done ASSR before going for Hearing aid fitting, cause it gives frequency specific information compare to BERA. Thanks.
