Newborn hearing screening is extremely important as it helps to determine whether infants have hearing loss. Guam EHDI works to assure that all babies born on Guam get screened for hearing loss by 1 month. If a baby does not pass their hearing screen, a Diagnostic Audiological Evaluation (DAE) will be conducted by 3 months of age. A baby with hearing loss will be enrolled in early intervention services by 6 months of age.

Universal newborn hearing screening is mandated by Guam Public Law 27-150.

Importance of Newborn Hearing Screening

Language development is impacted if there is any loss in the ability to hear.

Even a mild hearing loss can dramatically effect a child’s language development. Early identification of hearing loss is key to providing appropriate intervention services to promote language development.
