Technical Support to CDC EHDI Team on Part C Programs

Although the first Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs in the United States were established more than 20 years ago, most states and territories are not yet able to provide documentation of outcomes resulting from early development (ED) services. Lacking such documentation, it is unclear whether states/systems are accomplishing the goal of preventing or minimizing communicative delays typically observed in late-identified children who are D/HH or whether children are slipping through the cracks and consequently not receiving the benefit they should. The Early Childhood Technical Assistance (ECTA) Center will assist the CDC's EHDI team with: (1) identifying some best practices/models with Part C programs at the state and national levels to better address issues of documenting that infant with hearing loss are receiving ED services, (2) measuring progress, (3) assessing outcomes, and (4) meeting national benchmarks.
