Revised Protocol for the Provision of Amplification to Infants and Young Children from Western University
Since 2001, with the introduction of Ontario’s EHDI program, the Child Amplification and the Pediatric Audiology Strategies and Systems Laboratories at the National Centre for Audiology (NCA) have been responsible for developing and implementing the protocol for the Provision of Amplification for Infants and Children within the Ontario Infant Hearing Program (IHP). This feature article describes the revised protocol, including key evidence areas that have changed pediatric amplification practices.
