Do the Characteristics of Children who are Deaf/Hard of Hearing with Additional Disabilities Differ by Race/Ethnicity or Other Demographic Factors? 

According to ASHA, the prevalence of congenital hearing loss is 2 to 3/1000. There are numerous research studies/articles that analyze hearing loss, early intervention, and speech and language outcomes. However, there is a lack of evidence that evaluates hearing loss, additional disabilities, and other factors in children. Very little is known about the presence of additional disabilities among children identified through universal newborn hearing screening. This study proposes to investigate the proportion and type of children who are deaf or hard of hearing with additional disabilities from states who participated in the National Early Childhood Assessment Project (NECAP) database. This study will provide an analysis of children with additional disabilities by gender, ethnicity/race, degree of hearing loss, type of hearing loss, unilateral versus bilateral, English versus Spanish speaking, and by maternal level of education. Parent report will be compared with developmental outcomes from the Child Development Inventory. Based on the results, recommendations will be made regarding proposed solutions.

  • To evaluate hearing loss, additional disabilities, and other factors in children.
  • To provide an analysis of children with additional disabilities by gender, ethnicity/race, degree of hearing loss, type of hearing loss, English versus Spanish speaking, and more.
  • To purpose recommendations regarding proposed solutions.
