Hearing loss is something that is very common amongst new born and affecting them tremendously. In every 1000 newborns there are at least one-three that are born with hearing loss also known as HL. Researchers identify and screen newborns with hearing loss to minimize the impact it has on children. They want to identify the problem early because late diagnosis can result in delayed speech and language.
