We’re making updates! The Hearing First website, communities, and learning experiences will be offline briefly on Feb. 2.
Today, children who are deaf or hard of hearing are communicating just like their siblings and friends with typical hearing. Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) makes it possible for your child to learn to listen and talk in the language your family uses at home. They can attend their local school, play musical instruments, and compete in their favorite sports. They can even look forward to graduating college and landing the job of their dreams.
