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 – 2 months who did not receive a screening in hospital or with a midwife
    OR
    Infants 2-24 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, Community and Social Services Central West Region of Ontario
A referral is required to access this service:
