Newborn hearing screening
We require hospitals in Colorado to screen newborns for hearing loss. If your newborn hasn't been screened, find out where you can take your baby by calling us:
Colorado Families for Hands & Voices is dedicated to supporting families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing. The organization provides families with the resources, networks and information they need to improve communication access and educational outcomes for their children.
