Background

In March 2017, three stakeholder meetings were held to evaluate the EHDI-MS system and identify the greatest needs in North, Central, and South Mississippi. These meetings brought together families, screening and diagnostic providers, early intervention program and service coordinators and service providers, and other stakeholders who used the Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH) self-assessment tool to identify strengths and challenges

Based on these meetings and self-assessment results, Regional EHDI Learning Communities were organized to promote awareness of the EHDI system, support quality improvements, and encourage adoption of best practices of family-centered care coordination with families of infants and toddlers who are deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH).
