Infant Hearing Screening

Newborn hearing screening is available to all newborns with parental consent and is completed in the hospital nursery or by a midwife. Further action is dependent upon results of screening and whether the child is considered “at risk” for permanent hearing loss. Hearing screening is also offered in community clinics for:

  • newborns who did not have hearing screened while in hospital or by a midwife
  • newborns who received a refer result on a Stage 1 screening and are not considered at risk for permanent hearing loss
  • children 4 to 24 months of age and not previously screened if there is evidence of a valid risk factor relating to permanent hearing loss

Referral Criteria

  • All infants 0 – 4 months who did not receive a screening in hospital or with a midwife
    OR
    Infants 4-24 months who did not receive screening and present with a risk factor for permanent hearing loss (must be referred by a professional)
  • Infants born in Ministry of Children and Youth Services Central West Region of Ontario
A referral is required to access this service:

Did you know?

Did you know that a great way to “read” a book together is not reading the words at all?  The pictures in a book can tell a story all on their own and your child will enjoy looking at them and talking about them with you.
