Tip of the Month

 Listen Up!  Listen Up


Some of you may have seen our poster encouraging parents to have their child's hearing checked each year.


To go along with the poster, we have also developed a fun, sing-along video.  Use this short video to introduce Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) hearing screening to children in a playful way.  Or, use it to prepare parents and teachers for OAE screening.

(If you are not able to play the video from the YouTube link above, try to view it here)


Download the Listen Up! video now and use it in your classroom or on home visits.  


You can also find additional information to help prepare teachers to play an important role in successful OAE screening.
