Which test is more accurate ABR or Booth test?

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

For mothers who have children who are hard hearing, what test is more accurate the ABR or inside the booth? My son has gotten both test done and the results of both were a big difference, I dont know which one I should go by. My sons 1st Audiologist (not Pedi) performed the ABR and had him moderly to severe on both ears.The 2nd audiologist (not pedi) performed hearing test in the booth with out his aids an we got more mild to moderate depending on the frequency. According to the 2nd Audiologist she told me that they go by his reactions to sounds not the ABR because not every Audiologist know's how to perform this test on children. Keep in mind I have Kaiser and the do not speacialize with just children. ;-(
