HearingFirst

Utilizing the latest in hearing screening equipment, the HearingFirst program screens infants to adolescents (6 months-18 years old) for undetected hearing issues and assist them with accessing follow up auditory care. An estimated 10% of children screened will need to be contacted to receive follow-up auditory services.

The goal is to identify youth most likely to have a hearing impairment that may interfere with development, communication, health and education.

HearingFirst’s follow up process includes: assisting parents in accessing auditory services; contacting each child’s guardian or parent to inquire if they need health coverage; and using a case management approach to provide guidance and assistance with navigating California Children’s Services (CCS) process.
