When children are about 2.5-5 years old they begin to transition from doing Visual Reinforcement Audiometry to Conditioned Play Audiometry for hearing tests. In order to complete conditioned play audiometry typically a toy is used to help the child establish a conditioned response and to make it fun.

What’s the difference between hearing aids and cochlear implants? An Analogy
