Setting Language in Motion: Family Supports and Early Intervention for Babies Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

The goal of this free, resource-rich web site "Setting Language in Motion" is to foster an understanding of the importance of early language acquisition that supports robust linguistic competence and conceptual development in children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Resources on the site include multiple modules with text and video supports. Early intervention providers, deaf educators, early childhood specialists and allied professionals, parents, and other caregivers will benefit from this resource.

The seven module subjects are: early identification; the ear and testing; hearing aids; language learning through sign; cochealr implants; communication and language in the home; and family supports.  

Setting Language in Motion: Family Supports and Early Intervention for Babies who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing is a free, web-based resource developed as a collaborative effort between the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center and the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program of Boston Children's Hospital. It is based on the Building Blocks of Intervention webinar series created by the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program at Children's.
