Follow-Up Issues in Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Programs
Ensuring that children identified with hearing loss receive recommended follow-up is challenging. This program explores the need for standardized data definitions and reporting for EHDI programs, how well a university hearing clinic is able to meet its follow-up goals, and issues surrounding the consistency of hearing aid use by infants post-identification.
You will be able to:
- describe how standardized data can help promote accurate calculation of performance measures and assess progress toward national goals
- list the challenges of early intervention programs as stated by the JCIH (2007)
- discuss familial, developmental, and situational variables that affect the consistency of hearing aid use by infants
