Sound celebrates newborns


Someone was a star during his newborn hearing assessment today! We visited him at home and were reminded why we love celebrating newborns! 

The majority of states have laws about ; Approximately 95% of babies now receive a hearing screen shortly after birth, as states mandate that hospitals provide universal newborn hearing screening. The goal is to follow the "1-3-6" rule: All infants should be screened for hearing loss by age 1 month, receive effective diagnosis by age 3 months, and enrolled in appropriate intervention services by age 6 months. 

Sound provides office and home visits for babes born at home or for those who missed the hospital screening!
