After completing this article, readers should be able to: 1. Describe the prevalence and burden of hearing impairment. 2. Delineate the “gold” and “proxy” gold standards for measuring hearing impairment. 3. Describe the screening tests currently used to detect newborn hearing impairment. 4. Identify the advantages and disadvantages of universal newborn hearing screening. 5. Describe appropriate hearing screening methods after infancy. 
Screening and prevention of hearing loss in children.
TLDR
Strategies for screening and early intervention are discussed, as well as the causes, prevention, and treatment of more common forms of childhood hearing loss. Expand
Effective And Efficient Pre-School Hearing Screening: Essential For Successful Early Hearing Detection And Intervention (EHDI)
TLDR
Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) offer the most promising option for systematic hearing screening of the preschool population and multiple advantages of OAEs are cited in support of their role in preschool hearing screening. Expand
Infant Hearing Screening in India: Current Status and Way Forward
TLDR
Universal screening for hearing of new-borns is the only way to decrease the burden of deafness in the authors' society and under the aegis of National Programme for Prevention and Control of Deafness (NPPCD) of India universal screening can and should be applied. Expand
Universal newborn hearing screening: methods and results, obstacles, and benefits
TLDR
The aim of this review is to present the objectives, benefits, and results of newborn hearing screening programs including the pros and cons of universal vs. selective screening. Expand
Developing, implementing, and evaluating a hearing screening programme in the speech-language pathology clinic setting
TLDR
Data analysis suggested that discontinuing hearing screening within two clinic rooms may further increase sensitivity and specificity, and careful evaluation of the environment and validation of results should be conducted to ensure the efficacy of any hearing screening programme. Expand
Addressing adult hearing loss in primary care.
TLDR
Assessment of hearing ability by patient report alone may result in failure to detect hearing loss, and criteria for screening of adults in the primary care setting should be established. Expand
The role of hearing capability test as a screening test for the possibility of hearing disorder in children with speech delay
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of HCT as a screening test of hearing disorder in children with speech delay were 93% and 28%, respectively, which indicates that HCT should only be used as screening test and not as a diagnostic test. Expand
Screening to detect permanent childhood hearing impairment in neonates transferred from the newborn nursery.
TLDR
The difficulty of obtaining universal screening coverage in "transferred" infants was verified in this prospective, multicentre study. Expand
Validity of pure-tone hearing screening at well-child visits.
TLDR
The value of hearing screening using pure-tone audiometry during well-child visits is called into question given the lack of follow-up after referral and the poor sensitivity. Expand
A Multicenter Evaluation of How Many Infants With Permanent Hearing Loss Pass a Two-Stage Otoacoustic Emissions/Automated Auditory Brainstem Response Newborn Hearing Screening Protocol
TLDR
Whether a substantial number of infants who fail the initial OAE and pass the A-ABR have PHL at ∼9 months of age is determined, and the results show the need for continued surveillance of hearing status during childhood. Expand

TLDR
Hearing screen outcome data collected over a 4-year period in Rhode Island reveal a steady improvement in the percent of infants completing the 2-stage screen process, the stage 1 and stage 2 refer rates, compliance with rescreen and diagnostic testing, and significant improvement inThe age of identification and age of amplification.

Universal newborn hearing screening.
TLDR
Investigation of the feasibility of universal newborn screening using distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE) on infants in a community hospital in a normal newborn nursery found it can be accomplished easily in anormal newborn nursery with an acceptable false-positive rate when a two-stage approach is used.
