Proposed Project: Survey of Universal Newborn Hearing Screening and Intervention Program—(NEW)
The purpose of the universal newborn hearing screening and intervention project is to describe the efficacy, or lack thereof, of a national program to assure that all newborn infants are screened for hearing loss before discharge from the newborn nursery, and that those infants who do not pass the initial screening procedures have timely and appropriate follow-up, defined as audiologic diagnosis by three months of age and enrollment in a program of early intervention before 6 months of age. Program goals of linking every child with a known or suspected hearing loss with a medical home, that is a provider of continuous and comprehensive primary pediatric care, and linkage of families of infants with a hearing loss to a source of family to family support will also be assessed. In addition to a survey tool to be administered in all States, additional data will be collected during site visits to 10-12 selected States. Results of the study will include recommendations to the program office for further assisting the States in fully accomplishing program goals.
