Comprehensive Hearing Resource for Parents and Professionals

We received a BEGINNINGS manual at a conference we attended a few months ago. This is the most comprehensive hearing manual I have seen in our hearing journey. It gives brief, but thorough information about early intervention, communication options (great videos), assistive technology, audiology, school issues and legislation. It is especially ideal for parents of newly identified kids and those who are early in their journey.
I just discovered they have an online version of the manual and that they offer
additional information through a newsletter and videos which may be helpful to parents of kids who are
deaf or hard of hearing.
The mission of BEGINNINGS is to inform and empower parents as they make decisions about their child. In addition,
BEGINNINGS is committed to providing technical assistance to professionals
who work with these families to help the children achieve full
participation in society.
