Family Support Community

Our Family Support Community (FSC) is the place to share your experiences, ask questions, post stories, and find support. Families from across the country have access to free resources, parent learning, an open forum where parents confide in one another, and so much more. Members also have access to virtual Coffee Chats. These live, small group chats are a great opportunity for candid conversation guided by our facilitators.

Join the Community

Family Facebook Group

Our private, families-only group will allow for connection, guidance, ideas, and inspiration from other parents — right on Facebook! If you’re looking for a close-knit group of parents who’ve chosen Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) for their child with hearing loss, look no further.
