A list of the most common risk factors associated with hearing loss is below. It is important for parents to know that not every child with risk factors has hearing loss. However, babies with one or more of these risk factors are more likely to have hearing loss.
If your baby passed his/her newborn hearing screen, but was found to have certain risk factors for hearing loss, he/she should be retested by a trained audiologist between 9 – 12 months of age.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s doctor.
