Diagnosing deaf infants in Nigeria and elsewhere is possible. This article describes a study about a community-based program in Lagos, Nigeria, that diagnosed Deaf and hard of hearing newborn infants. The research concludes that it is possible for a community health worker in an immunization clinic to screen infants. However, they need a better process for bringing parents and infants back for follow-up evaluation.
