Early identification of hearing loss and intervention is critical for the development of speech, language and communication skills. Technical advances in the field of audiology had made it possible to identify hearing loss as early as even days after birth.
Neonatal Hearing Screening Unit has been started with the motto that every newborn should be tested and hearing loss should be identified as early as possible. The unit is equipped with state-of-art instruments for efficient screening including AABR and OAE which are recommended by the JCIH (Joint Committee for Infant Screening). The patients who fail in the hearing screening are referred for complete diagnostic audiological evaluation. And for those who pass the hearing screening, detailed counselling regarding monitoring the developmental milestones, auditory, speech and language stimulation are provided.
