SCSC's Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Community of Practice works to support the goals of Minnesota’s Interagency EHDI initiatives which are to ensure that:
- Young children who have hearing loss are able to maximize their communication and learning potential, regardless of the type and degree of their hearing loss;
- Young children who have hearing loss are able to begin kindergarten with communication, social, and early literacy skills at developmental levels similar to those of their typically-hearing peers, or commensurate with their cognitive abilities; and
- Each family receives the quality individualized support and services they need to help their child grow and learn.
Our team consists of Early Childhood leaders, Speech Pathologists and Deaf/Hard of Hearing teachers to ensure that we have high quality services for students and resources for parents within our region.
