OZ | eSP™ for Early Hearing Detection and Intervention
In little more than a decade, there has been monumental progress in early detection and early intervention services. Each year in the U.S. alone, more than 12,000 babies are born with hearing loss. Undetected or late detection of hearing loss can affect a child's ability to develop communication, or social and language skills.
