A message from Shelby Jepperson at USD:
South Dakota parents of young children who are deaf and hard of hearing, we invite you become a member of the South Dakota Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Collaborative’s Advisory Board for the current grant cycle (April 1, 2020, to March 31, 2024). We understand everyone’s lives are busy and respect your time. Meetings will typically be held twice-yearly, typically for an hour at a time, with the option to attend via Zoom. The main purpose of the SD EHDI Advisory Board is to provide guidance and direction and monitor progress towards the grant’s goals and objectives. If you have interest or questions, please contact Shelby at Shelby.Jepperson@usd.edu.
The South Dakota Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Collaborative would like to offer no-cost, online, interactive, and informational Project ECHO sessions for parents and caregivers of children that are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) helps spread information by empowering session attendees to share information with those in their communities, resulting in the growth of information. As a parent or caregiver of a DHH child, you are an expert part of the team providing important feedback on how to improve hearing screening and early intervention systems in our state. Join each session via Zoom from your internet-enabled device.
