04 Jun Newborn Hearing Screening @ Nova Scotia Hearing & Speech Centres
In Nova Scotia, infants are screened for hearing loss prior to leaving the hospital. This allows for the early detection of hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss can impact speech and language, social and cognitive development.
Newborn Hearing Screening is through Nova Scotia Hearing and Speech Centres. Please see their website for more information http://www.nshsc.ns.ca/nhsp.html
