2017 Mississippi Code
Title 41 - Public Health
Chapter 90 - Hearing Impairment of Infants and Toddlers
§ 41-90-3. Legislative findings
Based on information from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Institutes of Health, American Academy of Audiology, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and others who have completed extensive research on early identification of children with hearing loss, the Legislature finds an urgent need to establish an early identification system and a comprehensive service delivery system of developmentally appropriate services for infants and toddlers with hearing impairments and their families.
