This legislation, which was last passed in 2010, would reauthorize EHDI grants that fund state-wide programs that screen newborns for hearing loss before they leave the hospital. Additionally, the legislation would stress early intervention and family support programs that aim to ensure that parents of young children with hearing loss can gain access to the early intervention services they need, such as sign language training, hearing aids, and speech-language development. Current legislation was authorized through 2015; passing this bill will allow for its important work to continue.*

Yes, I support the Early Hearing Detection Intervention legislation.
