Answer

Infants diagnosed at birth should have a hearing assessment in the nursery.

Formal hearing assessment is recommended at age 1 year and before entering school.

Formal re-evaluation every 3 years has been recommended [13] ; more frequent testing is needed in children with repeated otitis media.

Adults should have a hearing evaluation every 5 years [13]
