Hearing loss can develop during early childhood. It is important to pay close attention to your baby’s speech and language development as any issues may be a sign of hearing loss.
It is important to detect hearing loss as early as possible.
The Infant Hearing Program provides:
- hearing screening for all newborns in hospital or community settings
- assessments to identify permanent hearing loss
- monitoring of children at risk of developing hearing loss
- language development services
The Infant Hearing Program (IHP) services are available to Ontario residents.
