(ECHO) Initiative, Utah State University

Monday, June 18, 2018

Each day, children with hearing loss attend early childhood programs. How will we identify who they are? Join the Early Childhood Hearing Outreach (ECHO) Initiative for a webinar on improving the quality of hearing screening practices for children 0-5 years of age.

Topics for this webinar include:

  • How hearing screening relates to the overall goals of Head Start
  • Current evidence-based practice recommendations for hearing screening with children 0-3 and 3-5 years of age.
  • An overview of Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) screening for all children and available resources to support implementation; introduction to resources supporting quality implementation of Pure Tone Screening for programs using this method with children 3-5 years of age.
  • Recommended follow-up protocol for when children do not pass the hearing screening.
  • Information about equipment options and costs.
  • How to find a local audiologist to assist in program development, training and diagnostic services.
  • Resources and opportunities that are available for training and technical assistance.
Who Should Attend? This webinar is will be valuable for Head Start, Migrant and Seasonal, and American Indian and Alaska Native grantees serving children from birth to 5 years of age.
