Missouri and Illinois both have early intervention systems that will support all assistive technology needed for a birth to 3-year-old child to achieve outcomes. CID audiologists can help your family explore the options. We also answer questions about assistive devices for any child, including that first pair of hearing aids.

Beyond age 3, insurance companies should always be encouraged to pay for hearing aids. Many states have issued mandates but practice varies from state to state. Assistance may also be available through the HIKE Fund.
