I have a baby who was born with profound hearing loss in one ear and mild to severe in the other. We were fortunate to have received newborn screening. Because of this screening we were able to get him a hearing aid when he was three months old and started the process of getting a cochlear implant for his other ear. Through this screening program we have access to a family support worker, audiologist, speech language pathologist, ASL teacher and a resource services teacher to help make sure our child is at the same literacy level as his peers when he begins school.

All babies should be tested before even leaving the hospital. Screening for deafness is there right. Please change to give a fair chance in life

Prevention or early intervention is always a better approach than waiting until problems arise.
