Your Child's Hearing

If you are you a parent of a child who is hard of hearing or Deaf, the most important thing you need to know is YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

I am sure when you first heard the news it was overwhelming for you.  I have to tell you in this world today we have such amazing technology. The best part about all this is you also have amazing support. There are tons of support groups. Support groups is something my parents NEVER HAD. They didn't know what to do for me because not one professional guided them the right way.


Thats why this post is important to me.

These two websites below will help you get a head start on your child's hearing loss.

My Baby's Hearing

Beginnings for parents of children who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing

There are support groups you can join. You can talk with other parents. There are a lot more support groups out there. I also know on face book there are many groups.  The three support groups below are very well known. I know alot of people who are on them and find them to be helpful.
