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 3 to 5 years of age. Learn about the Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) and pure tone hearing screening methods. The Early Childhood Hearing Outreach (ECHO) Initiative presenters will remain online at the end of the webinar to answer questions.

 

Topics for the webinar include:

  • The importance of periodic early childhood hearing screening

  • Current evidence-based practice recommendations for hearing screening with children 3 to 5 years of age

  • Screening components: choosing appropriate environments, preparing children to screen, and the screening process

  • Follow-up protocol for children who 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
