Help with Listen Feature Help with Listen Feature

Part C Eligibility Considerations for Infants and Toddlers who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing is a 2011 document from the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) and the IDEA Infant and Toddler Coordinators Association (ITCA). The document is intended to help those responsible for state Part C systems make evidence-based decisions as they develop or review eligibility criteria related to infants and toddlers who are deaf or hard of hearing. It also provides resource information to families of children who do not meet the eligibility criteria established by the state’s Part C program.
