Testimonial

Honestly, every single consultant that I have worked with through SDSD will always have a special place in my heart...I'm am probably the WORST at unwillingly changing any type of care/service provider, but SDSD sure knows how to pick the brightest crayons in the box! I have myself convinced that only the best can work at SDSD. I do hope you all know how much you are appreciated!

Early Hearing Detection & Intervention

The Joint Committee on Infant Hearing and U.S. Public Health Service's Healthy People 2010 health objectives recommend that all newborns be screened for hearing loss by 1 month of age, have diagnostic follow-up by 3 months of age, and receive appropriate intervention services by 6 months of age. Early hearing screening is critical in making the best decision for a child's future. 

Check out the above video about early hearing detection and identifcation. The video was created through the collaborative efforts of South Dakota Department of Health (https://doh.sd.gov), University of South Dakota, and South Dakota School for the Deaf.
