Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) has opened up a world of possibility for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
With LSL intervention and the right hearing devices, children with hearing loss are listening, talking, learning, and reading just like their hearing friends and siblings.
Our LSL Life docuseries shares inspiring stories of children with hearing loss using LSL to reach their full potential.

Remember that you’re not alone on this journey. We often hear how much families value connecting with other parents who understand what they’re going through. Learning from their experiences — how they felt after a diagnosis, why they made certain choices, and how they work with their support team — can give you the hope and confidence you need to provide the most support for your child.
