Opening Doors: Technology and Communication Options for Children with Hearing Loss


Soon after Peter was born, the hospital screened his hearing and found a possible hearing loss. Peter was referred for more testing, which showed that he did, indeed, have a hearing loss. Peter's parents were shocked. First, they had no idea that doctors could check a newborn's hearing, and second, their son?

If you've recently found out that your child has a hearing loss, this resource sheet is for you. Whether your child is a newborn, a preschooler, or older, there's help available. There are service systems in place to help your child and your family, and there are many groups with important information to share. This fact sheet can help you connect with both.
