Why Sign Up for this Online Resource?

It is proven that children learn to talk by listening to their family and others around them. When children with hearing loss are diagnosed early and have support from caregivers, they can learn to listen and talk just like their hearing peers. A child’s brain grows from experience. This free, online resource has been formatted to make it easy for parents and caregivers to access information on demand as their child grows. By having four distinct lessons, caregivers will learn how to create a learning environment within your home, as well as daily routines that are rich in language and experiences. Combined, this will provide your child with hearing loss what they need to support them as they learn to listen and talk. 


Lesson 1: Reading & Beyond 

This session will focus on practical and fun ways to engage with literacy throughout many developmental stages. It will discuss literacy building blocks and milestones from Birth-Grade 3, as well as how you can work on these areas through everyday routines, songs, and play at home.


Lesson 2: Fostering Independence Early 

These sessions will look at how to foster independence at home during the early years. These will help your child to grow up confident, capable, and able to advocate for themselves and their needs effectively. 


Lesson 3: Can I Play Too?  

Developing play and social skills is an integral part in how your child will communicate and develop relationships with their peers. During this session, we will learn how to teach social skills throughout the many stages of play.
