Parent Talk

Parenting can be both joyful and challenging, even in the best of circumstances. When an infant is born with a hearing loss many parents face uncertain family issues. Often they are unsure who to turn to for guidance. One of the best sources of advice is other parents who have already dealt with some of the same issues. In this section we asked several parents of deaf or hard of hearing children to talk about how they approach specific situations, including getting the entire family involved in a supportive manner.
