The National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness invites you to join the Early Childhood Hearing Outreach (ECHO) Initiative and the National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness to learn about currently recommended evidence-based hearing and vision early detection practices for children birth through 5 years of age.  Explore resources that are available to help you plan your sensory screening activities, how to access training, and where to find other tools to implement follow-up activities.  Ensure that children with hearing or vision related needs receive the support they need to be ready to learn.
