Tip of the Month
Ringing in a New Year with New Instructional Modules!

The ECHO team invites you to a "sneak-preview screening" of new, online, hearing screening instructional modules. Thanks to a number of Early Head Start participants who "starred" in the production, we can begin to offer all programs an updated and improved learning experience.  Videography  

















When completed, there will be approximately a dozen short modules that support professionals in all aspects of setting up and successfully implementing an Otoacoustic Emissons (OAE) hearing screening program for infants and toddlers.   These modules are being designed with the independent, on-line learner in mind, as well as supporting hands-on instruction provided by audiologists.   


Check out the initial modules:

...then give us your feedback on how useful they will be to you as you train/retrain screeners in your specific settings, and as you explain the screening process to parents and other collaborating professionals.


Our best to all of you in 2013!!
