Objectives: The Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program supports comprehensive and coordinated state and territory EHDI systems, so families with newborns, infants, and young children up to three years of age who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) receive appropriate and timely services that include hearing screening, diagnosis, and early intervention. This program supports state/territory efforts to build systems of care focusing on increasing health professionals’ engagement in and knowledge of the EHDI system; improving access to early intervention services and language acquisition; and improving family engagement, partnership, and leadership. The EHDI program also provides support to two organizations that assist the states/territories with technical assistance.
