Hearing Health

Just as every child is different, so are the signs and symptoms of hearing loss.

Hearing screening is simple and painless. Early screening ensures children early access to services to help them reach their full potential. Contact your child's doctor if you have any concerns about your child's hearing.

Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS)

Vermont PRAMS (Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System) is an ongoing survey of Vermont mothers who have recently given birth. PRAMS is a project of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Vermont Department of Health. The goal of PRAMS is to improve the health of mothers and infants by reducing adverse outcomes such as low birth weight, infant mortality and morbidity, and maternal morbidity.
