When it is confirmed that a baby is deaf or hard of hearing, families begin a new journey with their baby. Most parents are looking for support and information to guide this journey. A ‘roadmap’ for families to follow in the early months of their journey was developed by the National Center for Hearing Assessment and Management (NCHAM). With their permission, we have included a smaller version of the ‘roadmap.’ By clicking on the links below the image, you can find the full versions.

It is important to start
early intervention services as soon as possible. A
family-infant specialist will help connect you with follow up services and other sources of support. Hands and Voices developed a helpful resource that provides 8 reasons to say “yes” to early intervention for your child who is deaf or hard of hearing.” Click on the image below to find this resource.
