Audiologist's Role in Referral to Early Intervention

Wednesday, August 3, 2016; 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

Presenter: Presented by Christine Yoshinaga-Itano PhD

CEUs: .1

Duration: 1 hour

Who Should Attend: Pediatric Audiologists, Educational Audiologists, audiologists working in any center that diagnoses children in young children, community clinics

Instructional Level: Intermediate
Program Focus: Knowledge

Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

1.Define early intervention services

2.Describe why a referral should be made and how to make the referral

3.Describe the benefit to the child and the family for a seamless transition from diagnosis to early intervention enrollment.

Description: This presentation will provide a definition of early intervention services and the professional responsibility of the diagnosing audiologist to assure that families are not only referred to early intervention but also enroll. Research data from 10 states about the role of identification by 3 months and enrollment into early intervention by 6 months on the language developmental outcomes of children who are deaf or hard of hearing will be described. State by state variability in the provision of early intervention services will be characterized into several models: 1) a deafness/hearing-specific publicly provided early intervention program, 2) early intervention programs that are deafness/hearing specific that are both publicly and privately provided, 3) early intervention programs that are non-categorical (non-specific to deafness and hearing loss) that are publicly provided, 4) hybrid programs. Information about different methods of making a referral to early intervention, tracking whether or not the families enrolled into an early intervention program, and reporting enrollment
