“Guide-By-Your-Side” Tag Team Approach to System Enhancement (adapted from WI GBYS)
In Michigan n n We have 83 counties Over 130, 000 live births a year 2/1000 children will be diagnosed with a hearing loss Average ID is now 2. 4 months
Michigan Statistics 100% of Michigan birthing hospitals screening without a legislative mandate n Screening-92% of infants screened, to date n Diagnostics-46% reported outcomes for bilateral and unilateral refers, (2002 data) n Early Intervention-57% of infants enrolled in services as reported by Department of Education (2002, data) n
The Challenge n Many Early Intervention Providers have had little to no experience working with very young children who were deaf or hard of hearing; MI EHDI is housed in Department of Health; Early Intervention housed in Department of Education
The Challenge n Lost to follow up rates are a concern n Difficulty accessing follow up information from stakeholders n Missing link from diagnosis to intervention n Parent desire to meet another parent who has been there
The Mission n To develop a community advocate model of service delivery
Parent Guides…. Goals Goal 1: Provide parents with the opportunity to establish a supportive relationship with an experienced parent of a child who is d/hh soon after they learn of their child’s hearing loss n Parent Guides will contact the family within 24 hours of receiving a referral. n Parent Guides will meet with the family within 10 days to guide and support the family.
Goal 2: Provide an understanding of the unique needs of infants who are deaf or hard of hearing. n Parent Guides will help the families that they meet to learn about the unique needs of d/hh children – Providing books and materials that highlight family stories – By highlighting the impact of hearing loss on a child’s access to communication and demonstrating early communication techniques (i. e. Promoting eye contact)
Goal 3: Provide unbiased information regarding communication options n Parent Guides – New “Parent Notebook” – Received training in the sharing of communication options, and presentation styles that may indicate bias
Goal 4: Link families to resources available locally, regionally and statewide n Parent Guides have received training – In the art of listening – Assessing and addressing the question behind the comment – To be ready to answer some of the first questions families might have – And to know how to find appropriate resources for families – Confidentiality and HIPAA Issues
Goal 5: Ensure that families are linked to their county’s interventionists Established rapport eases the introduction of the family to the Early On® program (EI)
Goal 6: Ensure that families are connected to other parent to parent resources n Parent guides are NOT advocates. Parent Guides can connect families with Michigan Hands & Voices for advocacy or ongoing parent to parent support
Training n Initial Training for Parent Guides – October 8 -9 2004 – Founders of Guide-By-Your-Side from Wisconsin provided the training – Ongoing training- Conference calls – Attending Early Intervention/Parent conference- March 2005 – 1 st referral January 2005
