Screening for Hearing Loss and Otitis Media in Children provides a concise yet comprehensive guide to hearing and middle ear screening in children. From otoacoustic emissions and automated ABR in newborns to hearing screening in school-age children, this practical volume guides the reader through each step in the process. Specific protocols are provided as well as guidance in a variety of management issues (instrumentation, screening protocols, communication with families, etc.). Program design and referral criteria are provided for each target population. This practical guide is ideally suited for audiologists, speech-language pathologists, nurses, or support personnel, seeking a practical summary of procedures and protocols. Experienced clinicians will be interested in the program models described in the second half of the text.
