2004 State EHDI Survey

During the first quarter of 2004, state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) coordinators were asked to complete a survey about their program. The survey was developed to obtain data which would represent the status of EHDI programs in general, and uncover areas where changes, enhancements, or improvements would make EHDI programs more effective.

Through the cooperation and efforts of the state level program or database coordinators, directors, managers, administrators, consultants, audiologists, and supervisors, NCHAM has compiled the following summary for the 2004 State EHDI Survey. We wish to express our thanks to everyone who participated for the time and effort expended in completing these surveys. Your hard work and willingness to share your successes and challenges will help to improve the hearing screening and evaluation services provided to infants and their parents through EHDI programs and associated early intervention efforts.
