Publication year 2000 Abstract The Youth Health Care guideline 'Early screening for hearing impairment, ages 0-19 years' draws the attention of all parties involved to the case finding of, notably, perceptive hearing loss; it helps workers in the Youth Health Care argue their referrals and improve the next steps in the process. Referrals always aim at ruling out perceptive hearing impairment. It is essential to diagnose and subsequently treat children with perceptive hearing impairment. It is important to keep track of the process after the referral. Screening methods are the Ewing test, the 'Compacte Amsterdamse paedo- audiometrische screener' (CAPAS) test and audiograms. Each age category has groups at risk for hearing impairment. Problems in neonates are a low specificity of the Ewing/CAPAS tests, treatment of middle car disease without ruling out perceptive hearing impairment and absence of interdisciplinary agreements regarding the steps to be taken and the necessary feedback. Children with perceptive hearing loss should be diagnosed before 18 months of age. In the near future neonatal screening may detect congenital perceptive hearing impairment, but hearing impairment may still develop after the screening. Alertness with respect to hearing impairment will remain necessary in every consultation of a child.
