Instructional Level: Fundamental
CHLDRN of OH is a grassroots collaborative of professionals and parents from around the state. We engaged in a yearlong discovery process to learn the identification and intervention practices of children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families across the state. Data was obtained by interviewing families, early intervention providers and audiologists in focus groups and on line surveys. Results indicate difference in barriers to obtaining early intervention services between parents and types of providers.
