We are thankful for the support that we have received to help us serve more children in our community. As PRC is one of the few diagnostic centers in our region that offers timely Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR) testing for newborns with potential hearing loss, our team has been hard at work reaching out to local agencies and birthing hospitals to ensure that they know about our facility.
We are pleased to report that we have seen an incredible increase (over 400%) in referrals for infant ABR testing to our clinic, and the average wait time for an initial appointment is only 10 days thanks to the efforts of our dedicated team.
Contributions allow us to provide services and reduce or eliminate the barriers for underserved children and their families. Thank you for helping us to provide these critical early childhood interventions. We are grateful for your support of our mission.
We are grateful for the support we have received to help us reach more children from marginalized or underserved areas of Washington, DC. We are actively developing outreach programs, building partnerships and expanding our ILEAD Summer Literacy Program.
Contributions enable us to provide diagnostic testing, screenings,therapy sessions and cover transportation costs for families who have limited access to intervention. Our goal is to reach more children who are lost to follow up after referring on their newborn hearing screening and provide them with timely diagnosis, services and support.
Thank you for helping us provide these deserving children what they need to reach their full potential!
