Developing Culturally Competent EHDI Programs that Include the Life Course Perspective


Thursday, October 25, 2012

Our culture and life experiences often guide how we make decisions and understand the world around us. This presentation will describe how social determinants of health have strong impact on service delivery and potential loss to follow-up in Early Hearing Detection and Intervention programs.

Data from Massachusetts will be described and links to resources on this topic will be provided.

IDEA Training for EHDI Professionals

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Federal law (the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act: IDEA) guarantees many rights and services to families of children with hearing loss. Many professionals involved with EHDI programs do not understand how the resources and provisions of IDEA can be used to strengthen EHDI programs. This session will focus on helping professionals understand the provisions of the law, including the Part C regulations released in September 2011, and how they can work with other IDEA service providers to effectively and cooperatively provide the best possible services for infants and young children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

Evaluation 101
Wednesday, February 1, 2012

(Repeated) Thursday, February 2, 2012

For managers who may need to justify their program effectiveness to others, or who want to ensure that staff efforts are directed most efficiently: Tips and recommendations to help strengthen the evaluation plans for the state EHDI tracking and surveillance program and EHDI Information Systems.

  • Developing clear and focused evaluation measures will:
  • Offer objective evidence of progress when:
    • submitting regular reports (including those to CDC EHDI) or
    • responding to audits from those unfamiliar with EHDI programs
  • Provide early warning of possible complications or shortfalls to allow prompt adjustment of program strategy
  • Assess timely completion of deliverables by contractors
  • Match expenditures of time and money to a schedule of completed actions in order to monitor proper flow of budget

Re-thinking progressive hearing loss after universal newborn hearing screening
Thursday, September 22, 2011

There may be more children with progressive hearing loss early in life than previously thought. The percent of children with progressive hearing loss depends upon many variables, including the age at which the sample is taken and the degree of hearing loss sampled. Data will be presented on a longitudinal group of 146 children followed from initial diagnosis during the birth through three year period to 7 years of age. Cross-sectional data on 853 children will be presented.

EHDI Pediatric Audiology Links to Services (EHDI-PALS):
A National Pediatric Audiology Facilities Directory
Wednesday, August 24, 2011

The rapid rise of newborn hearing screening in the last decade has increased the need to ensure that appropriate and timely follow-up services are available for those babies who do not pas the screening. The Early Hearing Detection and Intervention PALS (Pediatric Audiology Link to Services) Directory will be a web-based system to help parents, hospital personnel, and physicians identify pediatric audiology facilities that will meet an individual child’s needs. The EHDI PALS Directory will include facilities that (a) have the appropriate equipment to serve children less than 5 years of age, especially the birth-to-3 population, and (b) employ licensed audiologists.

The CMV & Hearing Multicenter Screening (CHIMES) Study Update
Thursday, June 23, 2011

The CMV & Hearing Multicenter Screening (CHIMES) Study is a national, multi-center study funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), a division of the National Institutes of Health. The goal of this multi-million dollar, seven year project is to define the contribution of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection to childhood hearing loss and to develop a diagnostic assay that could be used to screen all newborns in the U.S. for congenital CMV infection. http://main.uab.edu/Sites/chimes/about/
