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

  • 1) Identify characteristics of children who are able to achieve age-appropriate developmental outcomes (language, speech/spoken language, social-emotional) as a result of earlier identification and appropriate early intervention services
  • 2) Discuss characteristics of children who are at risk for significant delays in their developmental outcomes despite earlier identification
  • 3) Describe differences in state systems and children from Spanish and English-speaking families, with cochlear implants, hearing aids, and hearing, deaf or hard of hearing parents

Description: The vision for identifying newborns with hearing loss began in the 1960s when Marion Downs established the Joint Committee on Infant Hearing. Children were identified on average at 4-5 years of age as compared to within 3 months today. In the 1970s -90s, only about 20-25% of the population of children who were deaf/hard of hearing achieved language development within the average range as compared to a goal of 80% or greater today. However, optimal outcomes are not guaranteed simply because of early identification. This presentation will focus on what else is needed.
