Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI)


Baby Collage

 

If you Have a Family History Of Hearing Loss, Your Baby Should Be Tested Every Year.

A hearing screening can usually show that your baby has normal hearing at the time of the screening.  However, the ability to hear can be lost or damaged at any age.  Ear infections and high fevers are just some of the things that can cause hearing loss.

The Georgia Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program (EHDI) is a collaborative effort of the Division of Public Health, audiologists, physicians, hospitals, legislators, and parents.  If you ever have concerns about your child's hearing, speech, or language, be sure to discuss them with your child's doctor.
