I recently learned about an unbiased resource for parents of newly diagnosed deaf children created by Boys Town National Research Hospital that I thought it was worth posting - Baby's Hearing.
This website is extremely informative and gives parents step-by-step on how to handle their newly diagnosed deaf children. It explains thoroughly why early intervention is crucial as deaf children's language can easily be delayed and who should be part of the families' early intervention team. There is a comprehensive list of parents and support organizations. Best of all, this web sites present all the methodology options for raising a deaf child.
