2020 Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Annual Report

The Illinois Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program works to support all infants and families through newborn hearing by screening no later than 1 month of age; diagnosing no later than 3 months of age; and initiating intervention, including family to family support services, no later than 6 months of age.

Early identification, intervention, and connections to family-based organizations are key to improving outcomes for infants who are deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) and their families.

The EHDI team provides follow-up tracking, education, and referrals for every infant born in an Illinois birthing facility.
