Early Childhood Hearing Screening

The number of children with hearing loss doubles during early childhood--from approximately 3 in 1000 at birth to 6 in 1000 by school age. Providing hearing screening during the early language-learning years is critical for helping more children receive the benefits of early identification and intervention. Since 2000, NCHAM has provided resources and learning opportunities aimed at improving the availability of evidence-based early childhood hearing screening.
