Eligibility: Families of young children with concerns about hearing impairment.
Services Provided: Babies cannot tell you if they have a hearing problem. For this reason, Idaho Sound Beginnings is dedicated to ensuring provision of newborn hearing screening for all babies born in Idaho. Children begin to listen, learn, and communicate the moment they are born. Even a small hearing loss can lead to delays in learning and language skills. All Idaho birthing hospitals provide newborn hearing screening before discharge. Babies born outside of a hospital setting can also receive newborn hearing screenings through the Infant Toddler program in your area. Please contact Idaho Sound Beginnings if you need further information regarding your baby's hearing. So, did u check? (DUCK)
