Early Hearing Detection & Intervention
The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing and U.S. Public Health Service's Healthy People 2010 health objectives recommend that all newborns be screened for hearing loss by 1 month of age, have diagnostic follow-up by 3 months of age, and receive appropriate intervention services by 6 months of age. Early hearing screening is critical in making the best decision for a child's future.
