Abstract

This study investigated the feasibility of using a localization task to rule out unilateral hearing loss in infants. Fourcorner localization ability was assessed in 29 normalhearing infants (9-20 mo) using four different test stimuli. In these same infants, a mild unilateral hearing loss was simulated by occlusion of the external auditory canal and the test sequence was repeated. Analysis of front-back, right-left, and combined errors for each of the test stimuli revealed that this type of task may allow detection of unilateral hearing loss as slight as 25 dB HL.
