Early Childhood Hearing Outreach
(ECHO) Initiative Webinar

Improving Hearing Screening Practices for Children 0 - 5 Years of Age 

Tuesday, August 23, 2016, 1:00 pm EDT

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
  • How to follow-up 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 that are available for training and technical assistance

Who Should Attend?

This webinar is for Head Start grantees serving children birth to five
years of age.
