Job Opportunity to Improve Hearing Screening and Referral to EI

Parent to Parent has partnered with NYEHDI (New York Early Hearing Detection and Intervention), a program of the NYS Department of Health (NYS DOH), and Hands & Voices of New York to increase the early detection of hearing loss in infants and prompt referral to Early Intervention services. Early detection is essential as hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop language and social skills. The earlier children with hearing loss start getting services, the more likely they are to reach their full potential.

Are you the parent or family caregiver of a child who is deaf or hard of hearing? If so, you may be interested in learning more about two newly created positions at Parent to Parent of NYS that will be responsible for our efforts in this project. The 30 hour per week EHDI Coordinator will work from our Capital District office located in Schenectady, NY and serve as project lead. The Hands & Voices Liaison will work up to 15 hours per week,as needed, and can be located anywhere in New York State.

More information about the EHDI Coordinator position is available at the link. The Hands & Voices Liaison position will be posted separately. Applications are due by Monday, March 19th.
