What happens when the life you’d imagined takes a turn? A diagnosis of hearing loss for your child comes as a complete surprise, but it can be the start of an incredible journey.
Taking the first steps toward listening and speaking takes persistence from parents. The effort proves to be worth it when children with hearing loss have access to sound.
Parents aren't alone with the right support team of doctors and interventionists to guide them on this journey, from early intervention to transitioning into mainstream school.
What does progress sound like? Families celebrate the sweet moments when they know they're on the right path for their child and family. They're on their way to listening and talking.
