Newborn Hearing Screening Intervention Resources

In Minnesota alone, approximately one in 300 newborns is born with a hearing loss that can be identified through newborn hearing screening. Pediatric primary care providers can and should play a major role in the care of infants who do not pass their newborn hearing screen.
  

The CDC and AAP have teamed up to develop a new resource for pediatric clinicians, which is featured on the CDC web page, outlining the crucial role that pediatric clinicians play in identifying and providing timely interventions for children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (D/HH).
