Florida Summit on Childhood Deafness
The Florida Summit on Childhood Deafness was last held November 9-10, 2012 at Westin Lake Mary in Lake Mary, FL. This conference combines the resources of Florida groups related to deafness and offers one joint conference with a focus on children who are deaf or hard of hearing ages 0-22 and their families.The mission of the Florida Summit on Childhood Deafness is to bring together those working in the field of childhood deafness ages birth through twenty two (22) in order to provide an inclusive forum for exchange of information, closer collaborations, and opportunities for building shared support systems for Florida's children and families. Visit Florida Summit on Childhood Deafness for more information. Information about the next summit will be posted as it becomes available.
The ECHO (Early Childhood Hearing Outreach) Initiative
Florida is proud to be an ECHO Initiative participant. The goal of the ECHO Initiative is to provide early childhood educators and health providers with up-to-date information on recommended Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) hearing screening practices so that children 0 â 3 years of age with hearing health needs receive appropriate services.
The ECHO Initiative has provided training, an OAE device, and technical assistance to establish model OAE screening practices with Pasco County Early Head Start, Florida State University Gadsden County Early Head Start, and Florida's Migrant Head Start program. These programs receive support in implementing exemplary OAE screening and follow-up practices and serve as examples, leaders and consultants to other Head Start and early childhood programs in their state.
Watch the Introduction to Periodic OAE Screening video for the basics.
Check out the How Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) Hearing Screening Works video to find out about OAE testing.
