Who We Are

The Wyoming Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Program works to ensure that infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with hearing loss are identified as early as possible.  If hearing loss is found, we then help the child and his/her family get the timely and appropriate intervention they need.


All newborns should be screened for a hearing loss prior to being discharged from the hospital.

Newborn Hearing Screenings

Infants who fail their newborn hearing screen should receive an age appropriate diagnostic audiological evaluation before 3 months of age.

Referral to Audiological Diagnosis

Infants identified with a hearing loss should be referred to an early intervention program before six months of age.

Referral to Early Intervention

Hearing screenings are available at any one of Wyoming's 43 child development centers at no cost to parents.

Hearing Screening for Infants-Preschoolers

From birth until a child enrolls in kindergarten.
