What happens now?
If the diagnosis has shown a hearing loss, the tests will also show whether it is likely to be temporary or permanent and your baby will now be referred for appropriate support. As a parent you may experience a range of emotions on being told this news and at the same time you may be very busy visiting different services and professionals.
Families or carers may contact the West Australian Foundation for Deaf Children (WAFDC) for independent information or support:
