Hearing test for my 8 year old son

My son is 8 and we have been asked by his school to arrange a hearing test. He is undergoing tests for dyslexia at the moment and he is also having problems processing oral instructions. We are unsure if this is due to a learning disability or a hearing problem. Can he be tested at Specsavers?

Answer: 

Paediatric audiology is a very specialised field and is not currently available at Specsavers. To get a test for your son you should contact his GP in the first instance.
