Permanent Childhood Hearing Loss 

In this map, assessment is broken down into two main categories a) assessment and b) screening. Within each box, we have provided up to date information pertaining to the three components of EBP: external scientific evidence (i.e. evidence-based guidelines, systematic reviews), clinical expertise (i.e. consensus-based guidelines, ASHA policy documents) and client/patient/caregiver perspectives (e.g. studies examining patient or caregiver assessment/treatment satisfaction). Boxes that appear gray do not have any evidence contained within them at this time; however, as new evidence becomes available, these boxes may become populated. Additional information related to this population may also be available in N-CEP's Compendium of EBP Guidelines and Systematic Reviews.
