Nebraska EHDI Parent Scholarship
The Nebraska Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (NE-EHDI) Program is offering a Parent Scholarship for the 2019 National EHDI Meeting March 3-5 in Chicago, Illinois to increase parent involvement in the NE-EHDI Program. This is an opportunity for one parent of a child (no age limit) who is deaf or hard of hearing to learn more about how to become a leader for families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing and to be involved, if interested in the NE-EHDI Program planning and implementation activities. This will help the NE-EHDI program to better meet the needs of parents and families. Click the link above to learn more about the parent scholarship opportunity.
