Because an infant’s initial hearing assessment may need a little more testing...

Sometimes newborns will be referred for additional testing after their initial universal newborn hearing screening which is performed at area birthing centers and hospitals. This additional diagnostic screening is provided at New Hampshire’s Hospital for Children, Elliot Pediatric Audiology. According to data from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institute on Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), 1 to 3 infants out of every 1,000 will have some type of permanent hearing loss. Early identification leads to early intervention, early intervention leads to better development of speech, language and literacy in children.
