These measures were developed in collaboration with scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and (1) are adapted from validated measures of teen dating violence, and (2) reflect the behaviors of interest and theory of change of Expect Respect. The Reactive Proactive Questionnaire (Raine et al., 2006) has also been included in the instrument packet and will be used to determine if subtype of aggression moderates response to intervention.

Background and Brief Description The National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities at CDC promotes the health of babies, children, and adults with disabilities. As part of these efforts the Center is actively involved in addressing hearing loss (HL) among newborns and infants. HL is a common birth defect that affects approximately 12,000 infants each year and, when left undetected, can result in developmental delays. As awareness about infant HL increases, so does the demand for accurate information about rates of screening, referral, loss to follow-up, and prevalence. This information is important for helping to ensure infants and children are receiving recommended screening and follow-up services, documenting the occurrence of differing degrees of HL among infants, and assessing progress towards national goals. These data will also assist state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) programs with quality improvement activities and provide information that will be helpful in assessing the impact of federal initiatives.

Given the lack of a standardized and readily accessible source of data, the CDC EHDI program developed a survey to be used annually that utilizes uniform definitions to collect aggregate, standardized EHDI data from states and territories. The request to complete this survey is planned to be disseminated to respondents via an email, which will include a summary of the request and other relevant information. Minor changes to this survey, based on respondent feedback, are planned in order to make the survey easier to complete and further improve data quality. These changes include splitting the previously combined question about the number of infants that were nonresidents or moved out jurisdiction into two separate questions and adding new questions. These include questions about how many infants were in a neonatal intensive care unit for more than 5 days, transferred without any documentation of a hearing screening, experience with the survey since the original Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. It is expected that 55 of the 59 potential respondents will complete the survey and therefore incur an additional burden of up to 4 hours per respondent. However, based on feedback from consulted experts about the length of time required to complete the original information collection it is anticipated that it will only take some respondents a few minutes to complete the revised data request. This is because jurisdictions often have already gathered and compiled the requested data for their own internal uses. Nevertheless, the more conservative time estimate of 4 hours per response from each of the 55 anticipated participants is shown in the table below. The estimated annualized burden is 230 hours. This estimate is identical to the time estimate for the reinstated OMB approved estimate from 2010; the only change is the estimated number of respondents.

The table for reporting type and severity of hearing loss data has also been updated so this data can be reported using either the classification system from the American Speech and Hearing Association or the current system from the Directors of Speech and Language Programs in State Health and Welfare Agencies. A total of 59 respondents will be asked to complete the updated data request each year during the 3-year requested data collection approval timeframe. Based on findings from the previous information collection, it is estimated that the burden for individuals to read through the survey and decide whether or not to complete it is 10 minutes per person.

    Given the lack of a standardized and readily accessible source of

is planned to be disseminated to respondents via an email, which will

out jurisdiction into two separate questions and adding new questions. 
These include questions about how many infants were in a neonatal 
intensive care unit for more than 5 days, transferred without any 
documentation of a hearing screening, unable to be screened or receive

table for reporting type and severity of hearing loss data has also 
been updated so this data can be reported using either the 
classification system from the American Speech and Hearing Association 
or the current system from the Directors of Speech and Language 
Programs in State Health and Welfare Agencies.
    A total of 59 respondents will be asked to complete the updated 
data request each year during the 3-year requested data collection 
approval timeframe. Based on findings from the previous information 
collection, it is estimated that the burden for individuals to read 
through the survey and decide whether or not to complete it is 10 
minutes per person. The 10 minute calculation was based on feedback 
received in pre-tests with 5 individuals and confirmed by the
