Baby Hearing Screening - Infographic
- All infants should be screened for hearing loss no later than one month of age. It is best if it is part of their very first newborn care. If the baby does not pass this hearing screening, it’s very important to make an appointment for a full hearing test no later than three months of age.
- Babies who do not pass the hearing test should see a specialist no later than three months of age. This will help make sure every infant with hearing loss is diagnosed early.
- Providing recommended medical, hearing, educational, and support services to infants with hearing loss no later than six months of age will help the child develop communication and language skills that will last a lifetime.
