Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Services (Newborn Hearing Screening and Followup)

Early Hearing Detection and Intervention assists with the early identification and intervention of people with hearing loss.

  • Infants are screened for hearing loss prior to discharge from birthing/neonatal facilities, or within one month of birth.
  • Infants referred from the screening process complete diagnostic audiological evaluation by 3 months of age.
  • Infants with diagnosed hearing loss receive appropriate interventions by 6 months of age, including amplification selection (if appropriate) and Early Intervention.
