Rehabilitation approaches include diagnosis of the hearing impairment, which should be accomplished earlyöpreferably from 0^12 months of life for the neonateöand followed by early intervention through the provision of ampli¢cation and development of appropriate educational plans. Early diagnosis and intervention are recommended to take advantage of the plasticity of the CNS, particularly in the ¢rst 2 years of life when the central nervous system is considered to be the most sensitive (Coninx, 1995; Downs, 1994).

Unfortunately, audiologic assessment techniques and guidelines for this population are limited. The use of electrophysiologic measures has been strongly suggested by some researchers and clinicians. However, despite the introduction of these objective measures in recent years, conventional behavioral audiometry continues to be widely used among audiologists in the challenging evaluation of consumers with CP. Although electrophysiologic measures such as auditory brainstem response (ABR), otoacoustic emissions (OAE), and immittance can demonstrate the integrity of the auditory structures and pathways, only behavioral measures can reveal their actual functional utility in communication.
