Children and young people commonly experience tinnitus, but this symptom is often unreported and the evidence base to support the assessment and management of tinnitus in children is lacking. The evaluation of a paediatric tinnitus assessment instrument is of vital importance to allow an appropriate appraisal of tinnitus burden, to allow triage, and to monitor change (i.e. outcomes of management strategies).
