SCREENING RESULTS and UPDATES
In 2014, hospitals and midwives screened 99 percent of babies. So far, in 2015, 115 babies have been identified as deaf or hard of hearing. Thank you to all our hospitals, midwives and audiology clinics for your efforts to ensure that babies born in Wisconsin receive this important screening and receive timely diagnosis and quality early intervention.
Wisconsin's final 2014 statistics will be available in our 2014 annual report coming this fall/winter. Our 2013 Annual Report is available from improveedhi.org or by clicking on 2013 Annual Report.
Tune in: Wisconsin Sound Beginnings will present on a national webinar September 14th about their collaboration with Women, Infants and Children (WIC) to reduce loss follow-up for babies who do not pass their newborn hearing screening!
