Recommended Uniform Screening Panel
Core Conditions (? of 35 conditions listed on the RUSP are Universally Screened)

Every state performs newborn screening for hearing loss, however not all states are mandated to do so. These numbers reflect state mandated screening for early hearing loss.

The core conditions presented are those listed on the Advisory Committee for Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP) and are disorders that should be included in every Newborn Screening Program. Current information for each disorder, along with the dates of implementation can be updated by individuals within each state screening program.

Amino Acid Disorders

Recommended Uniform Screening Panel
Secondary Conditions

The secondary conditions presented are those listed on the Advisory Committee for Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP) as disorders that can be detected in the differential diagnosis of a core disorder. Current information for each disorder, along with the dates of implementation can be updated by individuals within each state screening program.

Amino Acid Disorders

Other conditions screened by states

The conditions presented here are not currently recommended by the Advisory Committee for Heritable Disorders in Newborns and Children Recommended Uniform Screening Panel (RUSP). States have added conditions based on local regulations or statutes, or under pilot studies. Current information for each disorder, along with the dates of implementation can be updated by individuals within each state screening program. If no conditions are listed, this state is not currently screening for any additional disorders beyond the RUSP.
