What is the Solution?
Early screening significantly lowers the age of diagnosis, allowing children to start connecting with people and communicating earlier.
By getting the Canadian government to mandate early infant screening nationally, it ensures that every baby has an equal chance to achieve their full potential.
Signing the petition will also ask the Canadian government to remove financial barriers for families and health care providers when screening, treating and helping children with hearing loss, ensuring that no child is left behind.
Having a national database on infant hearing health will ensure the most advanced detection and treatment available for babies nationally.
