As your child grows and develops, you’ll celebrate the small steps and progress that lead to big outcomes as they reach their Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) goals.
Every year presents new experiences and exciting learning opportunities. Especially before age five, these new experiences are a key part of their brain development.
Whether you take your newborn on their first trip outside, your toddler starts daycare, or your preschooler has a playdate, these transitions can be exciting — and sometimes overwhelming. You may feel anxious or emotional about your child’s diagnosis of hearing loss all over again. Everyone copes with transitions in different ways but the goal is to make new experiences as positive as possible for you, your child, and other adults and caregivers.
Planning and communication are the best ways you can support your child with hearing loss as they explore, experience, and discover the world around them.
