What We Do
Every parent needs to know the status of their baby's hearing first. The earlier a child with hearing loss is identified, amplified, and receiving help, the more opportunities that child will have. Period.
Hearing First helps caring adults support infants and toddlers who are deaf or hard of hearing to have the same listening, spoken language, and literacy opportunities as their hearing friends. For children with hearing loss, the first days, weeks, and months of life are critical.
We support families during this period and all along their journey raising their child. We're here for families when they need information, a resource, a connection with another family, or simply someone to tell them what to do next. We reach families through our community, our social platforms and, importantly, the professionals in their lives.
We equip professionals with the resources, community, and learning experiences they need to improve outcomes for children who are deaf or hard of hearing through listening and spoken language.
