AAP Voices: Importance of Newborn Hearing Screenings, Follow-Up

Dr Daniel Morra, MD, FAAP, a long-standing member of the AAP and the Illinois Chapter Champion for the EHDI program, shares a story. Two of Dr Morra’s children were diagnosed as deaf at birth and were able to access early intervention services. Delays in speech and language make it hard to communicate and can leave children at a severe disadvantage, he writes, so successful intervention is key.
