Newborn Hearing Screening Follow-up
To ensure that all newborns in our area receive the appropriate required follow-up screening, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention if necessary, in a timely manner following the Joint Committee on Infant Hearing Guidelines for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Programs.
Newborns who do not pass the hearing screening performed in the hospital prior to discharge are seen for follow-up testing using non-sedated ABR and OAE test procedures. Our clinic provides the follow-up testing to babies across the West Alabama area. Infants who are confirmed to have hearing loss are then provided necessary evaluation and intervention services, including hearing aid fitting if warranted.
