GARCIA AGUADO, Jaime et al. Hearing loss screening (part 2). Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.81, pp.e15-e24.  Epub 14-Oct-2019. ISSN 1139-7632.

The process of learning and developing our language in a natural way is through hearing. Infancy hearing loss will limit auditory stimuli and will significantly harm language and speech development and will narrow the bonds with the world around. In infants and small children, early hearing loss detection and treatment can improve language and school performance. In the absence of screening, medium age of congenital hearing loss diagnosis in children without risk factors is around 2-3 years. Universal new-born hearing screening has spread widely despite the lack of solid evidence supporting its effectivity and cost- efficiency.

In this paper, which has been divided in two parts, the author thoroughly describes the topic, with its controversy and nuances, and finally declares on the recommendations that PrevInfad group have agreed for primary care pediatricians.
