Today, children who are deaf or hard of hearing are communicating just like their siblings and friends with typical hearing. There’s a proven path you can take for your child to learn to listen and talk. Through early detection, appropriate hearing devices, and prompt Listening and Spoken Language (LSL) intervention, children are excelling at the same rate as their hearing peers. With LSL, your child can learn to listen and talk in your family's home language, go to their local school, play music or sports, go to college, and work in the job of their dreams.
