Newborn Hearing Screening Testing

TLC was recently certified as a Level 2 Department of Public Health (DPH) provider to offer newborn hearing screenings and follow-up testing. By offering this testing, the Audiology Clinic will be able to identify children with hearing loss sooner, as well as start them on a path to Early Intervention earlier, including access to sign language acquisition.

All newborns receive a hearing screening shortly after birth in a hospital. If the infant does not pass during the initial screening, it is required that an appointment be made for the family at a DPH-approved site by the birth hospital within three weeks after discharge for diagnostic testing. Families may also seek a hearing screening if they decided on a home birth.

Additional Services

  • Custom swim molds, ear molds, noise protectors, and musician's noise protection earmolds
  • In-services and hearing screenings to community schools, agencies, and senior centers

My experience with TLC Audiology has been amazing. She has a wonderful way of reading beneath the surface of what I'm saying and factoring in my body language and facial cues, which results in better mapping and hearing for me.
