Where Do I Turn?
Four valuable service systems available to you and your family are:
- state services such as early intervention (for
eligible children up to the third birthday) and special education and related
services (for eligible preschoolers and school-aged children);
- organizations specializing in hearing loss and deafness
that provide information and support;
- resource and information centers that can offer
information about national and state resources and education rights; and
- parent groups, in which you can talk with other parents who also have children with hearing impairments or deafness.
The National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities (NICHCY) can help you connect with any of these systems. Contact NICHCY at:
