Supporting Success for Kids with Hearing Loss

Supporting Success for Kids with Hearing Loss is a resource for parents and professionals who work with children with hearing loss. The site is divided into discrete sections for parents and professionals. Each section has resources related to both Early Intervention and school-age children, and includes links to online articles related to parenting, descriptions and handouts about hearing loss, issues related to the learning environment, information on hearing aids, self-advocacy, social needs, and screening tools. There are discussions about the needs of children with unilateral hearing loss and the impact of ear infections on hearing and learning. The website has a consultant page with 5 professionals from deaf education and audiology offering answers to questions. Additional screening and scoring grids are also available to help track the progress of deaf children in relation to their hearing peers.
