BC Early Hearing Program The BC Early Hearing Program is a province wide initiative to screen all babies for hearing loss. The goal is to have all babies born in BC screened by one month of age. Why? Because babies learn speech and language from the moment they are born. Newborn hearing tests are important for families because much can be done if hearing loss is caught early in a baby’s life. The screening is simple, safe and effective.  Soft clicking sounds are played into a baby’s ears while a computer measures the baby’s responses.  The hearing screen is usually done while the baby is sleeping or quiet.
