It's amazing what's possible with technology today! Check out the replay of our webinar that explains how these incredible devices work to help children with hearing loss listen, talk, read, and thrive:
Properly fitting earmolds are critically important to your child's LSL journey! Little ears grow fast and it's important your child's earmolds fit well. Regular visits with your pediatric audiologist will ensure your child can hear all the sounds of speech around them!
