Time Critical Newborn Screenings
The ability to hear clearly is critical to the development of speech and language. Any hearing loss, no matter how slight, can impact a child’s ability to learn to speak. Our newborn hearing screening offers a very early assessment of an infant’s ability to hear. By measuring the hearing nerve’s response soon after birth, our team is able to identify any possible hearing loss very early so intervention and treatment can begin sooner. At Augusta University Health, we provide newborn hearing screenings for all babies before they leave the hospital.
