Information and resources
Children who are deaf or hard of hearing face a potential developmental emergency and should be identified as quickly as possible so that appropriate intervention services can be started. The AAP provides a comprehensive overview of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI).
All children who have a diagnosis of hearing loss are eligible for early intervention. To refer a child to early intervention, contact your local early intervention agency.
