Implementing evidence-based hearing screening and follow-up practices for children ages birth to 5 depends on more than just using the recommended screening equipment. The outcomes of hearing screenings must be clearly documented. Find out why the best hearing screening efforts are only as good as a program’s ability to monitor and support children after the initial screening. Learn how to ensure that those who need it receive timely and appropriate evaluation and treatment.

Topics for the webinar include:
Recording Otoacoustic Emissions or Pure Tone screening outcomes using documentation forms that support the recommended follow-up steps
Effectively monitoring the status of individual children who are in the process of receiving follow-up evaluation and treatment
Availability of a free tracking tool that corresponds with the recommended follow-up steps and also serves as an aggregate record of children screened
Using tracking data for quality monitoring of hearing screening and follow-up practices

Target Audience
Anyone engaged in conducting hearing screenings with children birth to 5 years of age using the Otoacoustic Emissions or Pure Tone screening method
Individuals responsible for supervising hearing screening and follow-up practices or data collection in Head Start or Early Head Start programs
