JCIH 2000Components of an EHDI Program

  • Hearing screening: 1 month

  • Confirmation of hearing loss: 3 months

  • Intervention: 6 months (enrollment in early intervention program)


Jcih 2000 components of an ehdi program8 l.jpg

JCIH 2000Components of an EHDI Program

  • Multi-disciplinary team approach

  • Family-centered, seamless, quality services

  • Information systems for tracking & follow-up


Slide9 l.jpg

The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) is recognized both nationally and internationally for its role in shaping public health policy with regard to early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) programs.

As such, position statements and guidelines have addressed new and emerging issues in EHDI


Since publication of jcih 2000 l.jpg

Since publication of JCIH 2000:

  • Data and experiences have become available that impact practice

  • Several issues have need to be readdressed

  • New data have become available

  • All have resulted in deliberation and work by the JCIH over the last five years, ultimately leading to the decision to develop JCIH 2005

    • Possible candidates for CI


Slide53 l.jpg

JCIH 2005

Position Statement and Guidelines

Revisions in Existing Sections:

  • Screening

  • Auditory neuropathy section

  • Audiologic Habilitation section

  • Early Intervention section

  • Surveillance section


Slide54 l.jpg

JCIH 2005

Position Statement and Guidelines

  • Revision of surveillance section:

    “Risk Indicators for Progressive or Delayed-Onset Sensorineural Hearing Loss and/or Conductive Hearing Loss”

    • Audiologic monitoring of infants with risk indicators who pass NHS

    • Every 6 months to age 3 years


Slide55 l.jpg

  • Concept Paper 2003: White (NCHAM)

  • Questioned the desirability of the JCIH 2000 surveillance recommendation

  • Concluded that:

    • little evidence regarding late-onset hearing loss in infants with risk indicators

    • practice of gathering risk factors in neonatal period was costly & time consuming and likely to be missed

    • Feasibility of audiologic evaluation of infants 2 x year

    • ? Wise use of limited resources


Slide56 l.jpg

In 2003, JCIH worked on revision of surveillance section and considered:

  • Medical Home role:

    • ID risk indicators regardless of screening pass

    • Query parent at each visit regarding communication: refer on parent concern

    • Refer any child with diagnosed disability

    • Routine screening of communication development; refer any child with delays

  • Testing hearing of every child enrolled in the Early Intervention System


Slide57 l.jpg

JCIH 2005

Position Statement and Guidelines

Revisions in Existing Sections:

  • Roles & Responsibilities: will now address transitioning from birth to 3 programs to 3 to 5 programs

  • Institution and agencies: to include Federal commitment to pre-professional and professional training
