Audiology 1

Hospitals routinely perform a hearing screening on babies in the first day or two after birth. If an infant doesn’t pass the initial screening, they are usually scheduled for a second screening at the hospital a few weeks later. Sometimes however, newborns and children who pass both hearing screenings may show signs of hearing loss as they get older.
