For Parents of Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Posted Jun 02 2009 2:45pm
I havent been around pass few days because I been so busy with a new hobby SCRAPBOOKING! Well anyways, I got a great email today from a friend who happens to be a parent who has a deaf child. Here is a new website called BEGINNINGS which is for parents who children are deaf and Hard of Hearing. Its a very interesting WEBSITE. I am sure itll help many of you so please feel free to check this out. The reason why Im putting this up because its very HELPFUL INFORMATION. My parents didnt know any of this stuff when I was little. So my goal is to PROVIDE many PARENTS with as much information as POSSIBLE.
There is also a PARENT MANUAL which was basically written by parents who have deaf/hard of hearing kids. It includes chapters on acceptance of feelings and coping strategies, the auditory systems, childhood hearing loss, assistive technology, communication options, education and advocacy, and a national resource listing.
