   California Newborn Hearing Screening Program
   The goal of the California’s Newborn Hearing Screening        
   Program is to identify babies with hearing loss and
   link them with services by six months of age.

Your baby may be delivered in a Lake County Hospital that has been approved to participate in the California Newborn Hearing Screening Program. During that hospital stay you will be offered the opportunity to have your baby’s hearing screened before going home.

As hearing loss can be invisible, your decision to have your baby’s hearing screened is important. The Newborn Hearing Screening takes place before you and your baby leave the hospital. The screening takes only a few minutes while your baby sleeps.

Devlopmental and Soci-Emotional/Behavioral Surveillance, Screening, and Anticipatory Guidance
Developmental and socio-emotional/behavioral observations by the health care provider can identify problems early so that additional comprehensive assessments and intervention can be initiated. Research demonstrates that early intervention maximizes the chances of improving outcomes. A careful review of a child's developmental and behavioral functions is necessary at each well child encounter.

Parents and caregivers play an important role in the development of children at all ages. Studies of children show that children do best if they have secure emotional ties with a parent or relative, and find a support system through school, church, or community. Helping parents and caregivers support children in their developmental processes and achievements becomes an essential part of each health assessment visit.
