Recently, a great deal of attention has been devoted to the development of universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) programs and infant hearing testing protocols (ASHA, 2004; Joint Committee on Infant Hearing [JCIH], 2000). This attention has lead to vast technological improvements and overall increases in the number of infants screened each year (Northern & Downs, 2002; ASHA, 2004; American Academy of Pediatrics, 2004). Current technology allows audiologists to formulate an estimate of infant hearing sensitivity a few hours after birth and when indicated, implement appropriate habilitative measures within 6 months of age (ASHA; JCIH).
