Early Hearing Detection and Intervention

The goal of the Virginia Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program is to identify congenital hearing loss in children before three months of age and to assure enrollment in intervention services before six months of age.

The Virginia Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program provides information and referral to families regarding newborn hearing screening, follow-up testing, and early intervention services.
