Abstract

Recent advances in maternal–fetal medicine and neonatology have led to unprecedented increase in the survival of severely preterm babies and babies with severe neurodevelopmental disabilities. These babies typically present with multiple neurosensory impairments and pose a significant challenge to neurodiagnosis and intervention. This review will describe some common neurodevelopmental disorders that impact the auditory system and present case studies to highlight the current technologies available to diagnose and treat the hearing problems.
