This book explores federal health care support programs that have been instituted to treat children that are deaf and hard of hearing and to improve children's dental services and oral health care, as well as medical care programs for children with Down Syndrome and their special health care concerns. The federal government supports these children through the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) program, which awards grants to states to develop systems to screen and diagnose newborns and infants for hearing loss. The Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 studies children's access to dental care; and the Prenatally and Postnally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act focuses on the effectiveness of current health care and family support programs for the families of children with disabilities.
