Hearing Screening in Infants

Author(s): Dr. Debashis Acharya


Hearing screening in infants helps to identify babies who have permanent hearing loss as early as possible. This helps the parents to get the desired support at the earliest. Right from the day of birth, babies begin to learn language skills by listening to and interacting with those around them. If these opportunities are not there, their language development can be delayed. Early diagnosis of hearing loss and beginning of its intervention helps to keep children’s development on track and improve their future language and social development. If the child is diagnosed with hearing loss, then the parents should seek immediate help in form of treatment and intervention from an otolaryngologist and an audiologist. Thus, hearing screening in infants is essential.
