Newborn Screening Toolkit
Your baby is a life changer. So is newborn screening.
Helping families learn how to communicate with hearing loss.
Can you pick out which baby has hearing loss?
Katie Dagenais, parent and former Executive Director of Florida Hands & Voices, shares her experience of what the newborn hearing screening process was like for her family. A copy of this letter is included in the Referred Hearing Folder that is provided to hospitals to give to parents when a baby does not pass the newborn hearing screening.
Hearing Milestones magnets are 3” x 4” and describe typical hearing developmental milestones for infants. Copies are provided to any requestors that serve pregnant women or families with infants.
After diagnosis is confirmed, EHDI staff will send parents a copy of A Florida Parent’s Guide to Hearing.
