Annotation: This goal of this project was to develop a model referral network and regionalized health care delivery system for children at high risk for hearing, speech, and language disorders resulting from otologic diseases. Project objectives were to: (1) Develop staff in the tri-State area of Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee and create and maintain a tri-State referral network; (2) identify contributing factors which inhibit health care delivery to infants and children with otologic problems who live among rural, remote, economically disadvantaged, and culturally diverse population groups; (3) remove barriers to care for infants and children with otologic health care problems; and (4) identify infants and children with hearing disorders living among rural and remote, economically disadvantaged, and culturally diverse population groups.
