NICHQ Highlights Success Stories of Louisiana, New Mexico, and Kentucky

States across the country are improving diagnosis, early intervention (EI) services and support for families with infants who have hearing loss. In the U.S., approximately 63,000 newborns out of 4 million born each year fail their hearing t

est. In 2009, approximately half of these newborns had no record of receiving a follow-up test or treatment. 

The Improving Hearing Screening and Intervention Systems (IHSIS) project is proud to report on the success of the Louisiana, New Mexico and Kentucky teams, which have made great strides in improving coordination of care for infants with hearing loss.
