Newborn Hearing Screening Follow-up

Goal:

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.

Description:

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.
