Learning Through Play

​When babies play, they are learning about themselves and the world around them. Play encourages social growth, language growth, problem solving, and imagination. In this section you will find exciting ways to encourage your baby to use play to explore the world.

From bubble blowing to blocks, from stuffed animals to stacking toys, babies love to learn through play. You can help your baby who is deaf or hard of hearing encounter the language that their peers with typical hearing experience as they learn from their play. You will find ways to expand everyday activities into creative play, and ways to support your baby's first attempts at exploring fantasy and imagination.​
