Newborn Hearing Screenings

In the state of Tennessee, every newborn is mandated to have their hearing screened via Automated Auditory Brainstem Response (AABR) or Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAE), whether it is within a hospital or a homebirth. Following the initial hearing screening, a newborn may be referred to an audiologist for further testing due to a "failed" screening or hearing loss risk factors.

The audiologists at Bridgewater Balance & Hearing are trained and qualified to follow-up on these newborns with the correct testing and provide the family with support and guidance. If diagnosed with a hearing loss, we work to guarantee the child has the best early intervention opportunities and services available.
