Considerations for the Use of Support Personnel for Newborn Hearing Screening
This document has been retired. The Academy’s Task Force on the Early Identification of Hearing Loss agrees that the use of support personnel in newborn hearing screening programs is an appropriate and often necessary strategy to achieve universal detection of congenital hearing loss. The roles and responsibilities of support personnel should be clearly defined. Support personnel should be supervised, preferably by a licensed/certified audiologist.
