In this webinar, learn about a self-guided learning process designed to prepare individuals to provide quality Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) hearing screenings to young children. The ECHO Initiative periodically offers a four-part web class addressing this topic. Now, the ECHO Initiative also offers this practical, hands-on, self-guided learning curriculum as a more flexible alternative for staff to access as needed.

The curriculum is divided into four online learning sessions and the content includes information and exercises for:

  • Planning and implementing an OAE hearing screening program
  • Explaining how OAE screening works
  • Conducting OAE screenings on young children
  • Engaging in appropriate follow-up steps when a child does not pass the screening
  • Tracking children through the screening and follow-up protocol
  • Accessing additional tools and resources that support quality improvement

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Developing an OAE screening program
  • How to participate in the online curriculum
  • Building OAE screening capacity within your Head Start or Early Head Start program


Target Audience

  • OAE screeners
  • Program managers and others who are currently using, or are preparing to use, OAE to conduct hearing screenings with children birth to 5 years of age
  • T/TA staff
