Learning results for parents
Children begin communicating long before they have uttered their first word. Parents interact with the child via eye contact, touch and sound imitation, facial expressions and body language. Regardless of hearing status these early interactions are important as a foundation for later hearing and speech development. However, parents are often confounded by the hearing loss diagnosis and lose their sure footing when it comes to communicating with their child.

→ Presentation will be supported with results of efficiency studies, surveys of parent satisfaction and long-term outcomes for speech development.
