Early Hearing Detection and Intervention: Issues and Trends

For many years, states have been following national guidelines for universal newborn hearing screenings to help identify children with hearing loss and coordinate follow-up. Yet there are still significant numbers of children who are lost to follow-up and do not receive timely care. This journal self-study explores issues related to early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI), including what data are collected, how process changes may affect follow-up, which factors appear to most influence follow-up after the identification of hearing loss, and whether or not adding genetic testing to the newborn hearing screening process will aid in the detection of at-risk children. The self-study also looks at what can be done to support parents of children with hearing loss and how identification after the newborn period influences the timeliness of service delivery. Clinicians who work with newborns with hearing loss will benefit from learning more about the obstacles that prevent families from obtaining timely services and ways to assist other professionals and parents to ensure optimal care.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • list factors that are barriers to follow-up after hearing loss is identified
  • describe possible changes to EHDI policies and procedures to improve service delivery
  • explain what parents of children with hearing loss need to support each other and participate in follow-up for their child
  • describe the impact of later identification of hearing loss on a child’s development and access to services
