This outstanding book breaks down the important things today’s parents need to know and do — from first diagnosis to educational steps in the journey toward raising a listening and talking child. Chapters include tips (such as helping your baby or toddler ease into hearing device use and exposing him to language at home) plus easy to understand information on relevant topics such as pediatric hearing tests, IEP team roles, resources and more. This valuable resource doubles as a college textbook for deaf education and early intervention programs.
