The high prevalence of hearing loss in newborns and preschoolers around the world leads to audiology to design “auditory screening protocols” and “audiological follow-up”. These programs, based on scientific evidence and clinical experience, were modified over time to optimize time and minimize errors in test results implemented for detection. Their objectives are to reduce the age of identification, diagnosis, and effective interventions to improve language and social-emotional outcomes in children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
