Has your child just been diagnosed
with hearing loss or fitted with hearing aids...now what?
Perhaps your child has had hearing loss for some
time, but you need someone to talk to about social
concerns or educational issues. If you have
questions, we can help or at least point you
in the right direction for answers.
The Rochester chapter of the Hearing Loss Association
of America (HLAA) is forming a support group for children
with hearing loss and their families. The group aims to provide a forum for kids to interact, families to network, share and acquire information, enjoy social activities together, and learn more about how children with hearing loss can successfully navigate the hearing world. Having a network of friends just like them? can buffer that sense of isolation that kids with hearing loss experience, and provide them with a feeling of self-acceptance and belonging. The groups activities and programming will be self-directed and will benefit from connections with the local HLAA chapter and with the national organization.
Call or email us today if you are interested in learning more about the emerging HLAA Rochester Parents Group and annual Walk4Hearing public awareness event.
