Abstract

The recent implementation of universal newborn screening has created an urgent need for an expansion of audiologic and rehabilitative services for this population. The focus of this article is the provision of amplification for infants and young children. Specifically, this article provides (1) a brief review of the importance of early amplification, (2) a theoretical perspective on prescriptive fitting algorithms, (3) a broad overview of "state-of-the-art" hearing instrument selection, evaluation, fitting, and follow-up, (4) a discussion of outcome measures for this population, and (5) suggestions for future research needs.
