Each day, children with hearing loss attend Early Head Start (EHS) programs. How will we identify who they are? Join us for a webinar on Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) screening methods and learn about appropriate hearing screening practices for children ages birth to three. Programs that are currently using OAE screening methods are encouraged to participate, ask questions, and share their experiences with other programs.
Topics for this Webinar Include:
OAE hearing screening technology
Establishing effective hearing screening protocols within your program
Follow-up strategies for children who don’t pass hearing assessments
How to share ideas with other programs who have been working with OAE screening methods
Before the Webinar:
Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:00 a.m. (EDT) on March 30, 2012.
Who Should Attend?
This webinar will be valuable for all programs (EHS, Migrant and Seasonal Head Start, and American Indian/Alaska Native Head Start) working with children ages birth to three, as well as individuals who support hearing screening activities at the state or community level for birth-to-three populations.
