Tele-intervention (TI) is a growing method for bringing specialized services to families of young children with hearing loss. The National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM) has recently released a new Tele-Intervention Resource Guide (October 2011), which reflects the pioneer efforts of six EI programs from across the country. It highlights recommended practices for conducting TI sessions and includes information about technology considerations, licensure and reimbursement, and how to ensure privacy and security. Information about a learning community of TI providers is also provided. To learn more, go to http://www.infanthearing.org/ti-guide
