No they don't. They only use ABR if they fail the otoacoustic emissions test first.

Sorry to interupt your thread Alex, and your daughter is beautiful.
i think it is different in different places. I know that the recommedation is to do both (since they screen for different things.) but neither test requires a response from the child. (that is what i was responding to)

(and yes, congratulations alex. I'm sure your baby will do beautifully deaf or hearing!)
