AG Bell Monograph Highlights Compelling Strategic Analysis of State Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Programs

The Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
(AG Bell) recently released a monograph that presents the findings of an analysis that applies a widely used business strategic
planning tool to gain new insights into the strengths, weaknesses,
opportunities, and threats of statewide EHDI programs across the nation. The monograph presents the findings of a 2009 survey in which state EHDI
coordinators responded to an online survey of 12 major areas within
their EHDI systems. Each EHDI coordinator was asked to identify at least
one strength, weakness, opportunity, and threat for use in strategic
planning. The project was supported by the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM).
