Newborn Hearing Screening Programme - Leaflets and Booklets


The HSE’s Newborn Hearing Screening Programme has published a range of information to help parents understand the Newborn Hearing Screening Programme. 

You baby will possibly need further hearing tests if the first hearing screening tests did not show a clear response in one or both ears. These tests will be done at the Audiology Clinic (Hearing Clinic) at Cork University Hospital. The leaflet create a "Your Baby’s Visit to the Audiology Clinic (Hearing Clinic)" explains what happens at the Audiology Clinic. 

We also have two checklists of sounds. One giving sounds that your baby should react to 'Reactions to sounds checklist' and the other giving types of sounds your child should make as they grow older 'Making sounds checklist'.
