Abstract: The establishment of welfare measures for preschool children with speech impediments caused by hearing disorders has now become one of the most important of social questions in this country. In order to effect an early and timely discovery of preschool children with such physical handicaps, there is no choice for it but to resort to child audiometry. Getting hint from the fact that little children are found of playing with the toy telephone, the author has contrived a new apparatus for their audiometric examination, putting some improvements into the toy telephone set, and studied on clinical application of this apparatus. The objects were 25 normal adults, 100 normed children, 5 or 6 year old, and 10 children hard of hearing. The method employed in this study consisted of the comparative study on results of hearing test for normal adult through standard audiometer and those obtained through new apparatus, examination of liminal threshold of audibility and auditory responses through hearing test for normal preschool children and experimental application of the apparatus to hearing test of preschool children hard of hearing. What can be said from results of these studies are that this is a method of child audiometry midway between Startle Response Audiometry and Play Audiometry, and this will also be applicable for screening purposes of small children.
