AVEd., Director of Clarke's Philadelphia campus, and Meredith Berger, M.S., Director of Clarke's New York campus, will deliver a joint presentation titled, "Diagnosed Condition or Documented Delay: Understanding the Numbers" at the 12th annual Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) meeting. The meeting will take place April 14-16, 2013, in Glendale, Arizona.

The presentation will give a brief description and comparison of early intervention evaluation procedures in New York and Pennsylvania. The talk will include evaluation results of initial testing for children who started auditory-based speech and language therapy after diagnosis and EI referral.
