dc.description.abstract This thesis has outlined a reliable and practical method for auditory screening in the newborn. Validation of the assumption that the Denver test kit bell could be used as a standardized stimulus was accomplished by electronic analysis. The experimental stimulus, then, was matched against a standardized commercial device for auditory screening with the hypothesis that there would be no differences in response patterns elicited by the two instruments. Newborns in a hospital nursery served as subjects.No significant differences existed between the two groups with respect to the number judged as hearing infants. However, there was a significant difference between the two groups with respect to the number judged as nonhearing infants.In addition, a discussion is presented to illustrate the meaning of the findings, the usefulness of this study, and a method for continuing the auditory evaluation of newborns.Ball State UniversityMuncie, IN 47306 en_US
