Responsibilities of the Wyoming EHDI Program's audiologist include evaluating children birth to five years of age, fitting them with amplification, and continuing audiological management related to early intervention services. In addition to these responsibilities, the successful candidate is expected to train hospital nursery staff, midwives, and child development center personnel on hearing screening protocols and procedures.
