• The Yes-No Test is a procedure that can be used in the diagnosis of nonorganic hearing loss in children. The test employs a pure tone audiometric technique in which the child is instructed to say "yes" when he hears the tone and "no" when he does not hear the tone. This article describes clinical findings in three cases involving nonorganic hearing loss in which the Yes-No Test was instrumental in determining the true organic hearing thresholds.
