Currently, the Pennsylvania Newborn Hearing Screening and Intervention program seeks to assure that all newborns:
- are screened for hearing loss within the first 30 days,
- are diagnosed within three months, and
- receive prescribed treatment or intervention services within six months of birth.*
We have one more chance to contact our state senators. Please email me (magicearkids at gmail dot com) for a list of main points you can use in a letter to your senator.
