Family Leadership in Language and Learning: Hands & Voices

Hands & Voices supports the development of statewide newborn and infant hearing screening, with a focus on evaluation, diagnosis, intervention programs, and systems development. Hands to Voices promotes the inclusion of families, parents, and caregivers of deaf or hard of hearing infants/children in statewide Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) systems.  Individuals in need of care identified through the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening Program can access Hands to Voices resources on language and social-emotional development, as well as education and literacy.
