When you know the status of your baby’s hearing first, you’re able to ensure their brain is accessing all the sounds it needs to grow! Most babies have their hearing screened just after they’re born. If your baby didn’t pass the newborn hearing screening, you’ll be referred for a rescreen or a more complete hearing evaluation with a pediatric audiologist (a hearing doctor for children).
