The Journal of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (JEHDI) is pleased to announce the publication of the Joint Committee on Infant Hearing “Year 2019 Position Statement: Principles and Guidelines for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Programs.” EHDI activities beginning at the birth hearing screening and culminating in early intervention, have positively impacted outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families.

This 2019 document builds on prior publications, updating best practices through literature reviews and expert consensus opinion on screening; identification; and audiological, medical, and educational management of infants and young children and their families.
