Newborn Hearing Screening Facts
- Hearing loss is the most common congenital birth condition. 1-3/1000 are identified each year through newborn hearing screening in the United States (CDC, 2013)
- All states conduct newborn hearing screening and most have legislation requiring that babies are screened prior to hospital discharge
- Early identification of hearing loss (by six months of age) leads to the opportunity for on-time speech, language development and school readiness
- Special education cost savings are estimated over $400,000 when hearing loss is identified early
What is screening ABR?
Screening ABRs measure hearing by placing three electrodes on the head and neck to detect the nervous system’s response to sound stimulus. It provides a comprehensive screening of the auditory system as it screens from the ear canal to the brainstem. ABR offers two ways to deliver sound stimulus; via a probe placed in the ear. It is the recommended method for screening babies in the neonatal intensive care unit but is also widely used to screen well babies.
