Early Hearing Detection and Intervention | 844.314.6805

Alberta’s Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Program is a province-wide screening program offered by AHS. The program identifies permanent hearing loss early in baby’s life. This ensures follow-up and support can be provided sooner to babies and the families. All babies born in Alberta, or born to parents living in Alberta, are eligible for hearing screening within 90 days of birth. It’s best for babies to be screened by 1 month of age.
