Early Hearing Detection Intervention
Originally enacted in 2000, the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Act provides funding for early hearing detection and intervention programs nationwide. The goal of the EHDI program is to identify hearing loss at an early age provide early intervention services and supports, and to ensure every child develops communication and social skills commensurate with their cognitive abilities.
The 1-3-6 plan, as it’s commonly referred to, involves:
- 1 Month - Newborns will be screened for hearing loss before 1 month of age, preferably before hospital discharge.
- 3 Months - Newborns who screen positive will have a diagnostic audiological evaluation before 3 months of age.
- 6 Months - Newborns and infants identified with a hearing loss will receive appropriate early intervention services, including an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).
Hear 2 Learn is proud to play an important role in this process as a pediatric facility that provides both the diagnostic audiological evaluations and the specialized therapies.
