Hearing screening

Good hearing is important. If a child does not hear properly, he will for example not learn to talk properly. The sooner it is discovered that your baby is hearing impaired, the sooner treatment can begin. That is why hearing is tested soon after birth. Hearing is tested at the child health clinic when the child is a few weeks old. In that case you will receive an invitation to go for this. For more information, go to www.rivm.nl/gehoorscreening
