The early diagnosis of auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) following newborn hearing screening poses a number of challenges to parents and clinicians. The first challenge lies with trying to identify the degree of hearing loss, which is not possible to determine from auditory brainstem response testing. The second challenge relates to determining the best course of management for each individual where both parents and clinicians can receive conflicting information.
