Screening for Hearing Loss in Infants.
Diefendorf, Allan O.
Volta Review, v99 n5 p43-61 1997
This article discusses six criteria for justifying universal infant hearing screening, including: significant consequences must result when the disorder is not detected, programs must be available, accessible, and cost-effective, and birth-admission screening must result in an improved outcome. It concludes that universal detection of infant hearing loss is justifiable. (Contains extensive references.) (Author/CR)
