After receiving a hearing loss diagnosis and fitting your child with hearing technology, you should continue your listening and spoken language (LSL) journey by seeking early LSL intervention services and building a team of professionals, friends, and family to support you along the way.
For a child with hearing loss, parents need to learn how to be their child’s first teacher so families can reach positive listening, speaking, literacy, academic, and social outcomes.
Learn what family-centered early intervention services are and why enrolling as quickly as possible is so important for your child to learn to listen and talk.
Better results happen when families and professionals work together. This partnership is critical for helping a child with hearing loss achieve the same learning milestones as their hearing friends.
Learn more more about your LSL early interventionist, your role as a parent in early intervention, and how to create positive ongoing partnerships.
