If our doctors suspect that your child has sensorineural hearing loss, she will be given an Auditory Brainstem Response Evaluation (ABR). This simple test evaluates how well sounds travel along her hearing nerve pathways from the ear to the brainstem. The test, performed while she's comfortably sedated, shows the softest sounds your child's ears can detect at various pitches.
How Boston Children's approaches ABR
Your child will be seen by members of our Diagnostic Audiology Program, which specializes in all aspects of infant and child hearing loss, from psychological effects to technological assistance. Our team has more than 11,000 visits each year.
