Understanding how important the Infant Hearing Program is to the development and wellness of infants, parents whose infants did not receive the newborn hearing screen can now have their baby's hearing checked.The Hearing Check will be available for babies who:
  • are more than 2 months of age
  • have not received a hearing screening

The Hearing Check, which is designed for slightly older infants, is very similar to newborn hearing screening.It is designed to identify babies who need to be referred on to an audiologist for additional hearing testing. The Hearing Check will be available in audiology clinics in the following communities:  Guelph, Kitchener-Waterloo, Oakville, Mississauga, Brampton and Orangeville. Parents will be contacted in the next few weeks and offered a Hearing Check appointment.
