federal pressure to improve outcomes of children with hearing loss
Federal Pressure to Improve Outcomes of Children with Hearing Loss
  • The Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993 (Public Law 103-62) requires that Federal programs establish measurable goals approved by the US Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The GPRA Measures for the EHDI program are:
  • The number of infants screened prior to discharge
  • The number with confirmed hearing loss by 3 mos of age
  • The number enrolled in an EI program by 6 months
  • The number with confirmed or suspected hearing loss referred to an ongoing source of comprehensive healthcare (i.e. medical home)
  • The number of children with non-syndromic hearing loss who have developmentally appropriate language and communication skills at school entry
quality indicators draft jcih 2006
Quality Indicators (draft JCIH 2006)

Quality Indicators for Early Intervention

  • For infants with confirmed hearing loss who qualify for Part C, the percentage for whom parents have signed an IFSP before 6 months of age (for children with acquired or later identified hearing loss, the percentage for whom parents have signed an IFSP within 45 days of the diagnosis).

Recommended benchmark is 90%.

Quality Indicators (draft JCIH 2006)

Quality Indicators for Early Intervention

  • Percent of infants with confirmed hearing loss who receive the first developmental assessment using standardized assessment protocols (not criterion reference checklists) for language, speech and non-verbal cognitive development by 12 months of age

Recommended benchmark is 90%

  • Spoken and/or sign language development should be commensurate with the child’s age and cognitive abilities
  • Early-intervention programs must assess the language, cognitive skills, auditory skills, speech, and social-emotional development of all children with hearing loss at 6 month intervals during the first 3 years of life, using assessment tools standardized on children with normal hearing.

  • While criterion referenced checklists may provide valuable information for establishing intervention strategies and goals, these assessment tools alone are not sufficient for parents and intervention providers to determine whether a child’s developmental progress is comparable to hearing peers.
advantages of a state communication development monitoring protocol
Advantages of a state Communication Development Monitoring Protocol
  • Consistent biannual assessment protocol in state
  • Involves parents in all aspects of data gathering
  • Provides data-based information to parent and team on which to base decisions about services
  • Provides information that can be used to analyze child outcomes on an individual, regional, and statewide basis (demands for accountability, outcomes measures federally)
  • Children transition to Part B with a documented history showing rate of development
  • Parent involvement leads to more informed advocacy and fairer expectations for student development and learning
components of florida s cdm
Components of Florida’s CDM
  • Collection and biannual updating of demographic and hearing and service related information
  • Norm referenced vocabulary checklist (3 levels - customized MacArthur Scales)
  • Criterion referenced SKI*HI Language Development Scale
  • Auditory Skills Checklist
  • Parent Interview Progress Report

Inquires about practices

related to providing

communication access.

If a child is not progressing at the desired rate it may be due to family skills or consistency in providing access to language and/or

sound.

new way to report cdm results
New way to report CDM results!
  • Providers complained of paper report forms and faxing
  • Providers complained of having to look at norm charts for vocabulary test results
  • Providers confused about how to obtain information to indicate growth in expressive vocabulary per 6-month period
  • EVERYONE WANTED AN E-VERSION!

submitting the cdm report
Submitting the CDM Report
  • Person prints out a copy
  • Enter service coordinator email address
    • Service coordinator receives an abbreviated report
  • Submit button at bottom directs an email that sends the data to an Excel data sheet at the state office

Now the hard part – making sure the CDM information is submitted for every young child with hearing loss!

A FINAL WORD: Another state could certainly use the source code for their own CDM but they would need to process the forms their own way.  The code would need to be modified to fit the state’s individual needs.
