Today, About one to three babies out of every 1,000 will be born with a permanent hearing loss

It is important to identify hearing loss as early as possible because babies start learning how to use sound as soon as they are born. Listening in the first months of life prepares babies to speak.

Most children hear and listen to sounds from birth. They learn to talk by imitating the sounds around them and the voices of their parents and caregivers. But that’s not true for all children. In fact, about two or three out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or hard-of-hearing.

Hearing health begins with screening for hearing loss at birth. Without screening, the average age of identification of hearing loss has historically been between 2 ½ to 3 years of age, making it difficult for many children to catch up with communication and social skills.
