March 17-19, 2024 • Denver, CO
3/06/2023 | 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM | Blueprint for Change: The Role of EHDI in a Well-Functioning System of Services for CYSHCN | Grand Ballroom B
In partnership with families, healthcare professionals, and other experts in the field, the Division of Services for Children with Special Health Needs (DSCSHN) developed the Blueprint for Change: A National Framework for a System of Services for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs. The Blueprint provides a framework to help every child get what they need so they can play, go to school, and grow up to be healthy adults. This presentation will highlight how the work of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs can improve quality of life for every young child who is D/HH and their families by contributing to a well-functioning system of services for CYSHCN.
- Describe the role of EHDI within the greater context of systems of services for CYSHCN
- Explain how EHDI programs support the quality of life of children who are D/HH and their families
- Identify how EHDI programs align with the four critical areas of the Blueprint for Change: equity, quality of life, access to services, and financing of services
