Quick connect link to EHDI PALS

A new easy-to-use online directory, EHDI-PALS, helps families find the nearest clinic that can provide the type of hearing service their child needs. A national group of health professionals and parents developed a free web-based list of pediatric hearing audiology facilities, known as the Pediatric Audiology Links to Services (PALS).


The CDC EHDI homepage: http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/hearingloss/index.html  features a “button” leading to the PALS website. This button can be copied and distributed by states and organizations to facilitate access to this new resource.

PALS is managed by a non-profit group of government, professional and service organizations.  It is not connected to any marketing effort by the facilities listed. Parents can explore different possible facilities on PALS before making contact. PALS has information about hearing (audiology) services for infants, toddlers, preschool, and school-age children. All of the facilities listed must report that they have the right equipment and expertise to serve children, and have licensed audiologists.
