Hearing Loss Guidelines

An appointment will only be offered with GSWA where the hearing loss is severe to profound,
congenital (diagnosed at the newborn screen or before age 2) and bilateral.

An appointment may be offered if:

  • There is a significant family history
  • The hearing loss is thought to be a part of a syndrome
  • The child has dysmorphic features
  • There are other musculoskeletal abnormalities
  • Imagining has been performed confirming associated structural anomalies

Please note: Please consider an MRI or CT scan prior to referral and if complete, include the report with the referral.
