Texas Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (TEHDI)

Our purpose is to ensure all children who have hearing loss as newborn infants or young children are identified early and provided appropriate intervention services needed to prevent delays in communication and cognitive skill development.  The Texas Newborn Hearing Screening (NBHS) was established in 1999 through the passage of House Bill 714, and is currently being implemented in Texas hospitals.  The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is the oversight agency.
