Whether you are using Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) hearing screening or Pure Tone Audiometry, you likely have questions and/or a need to review key points to ensure you are adhering to evidence-based practice guidelines.

Please join us for a webinar and question and answer session on improving the quality of hearing screening and evaluation practices for children ages birth to 5. And spread the word to anyone whom you think may benefit from this learning opportunity.
