Access to Language

Literacy Puts Every Child on the Path to Becoming Who they are Meant to Be

Children who are D/deaf or hard of hearing can achieve the same educational outcomes as their peers with typical hearing when given access to the opportunity to do so. Realizing this potential hinges on hard work of those surrounding them - to ensure a swift diagnosis, equitable access to timely audiological care, enrollment in early intervention, and establishment of appropriate school-age services. As a professional, your pivotal role in supporting our children to reach their full potential cannot be overstated. The online learning modules below are designed to aid you in enhancing and tailoring your services - guaranteeing that every child gains timely and suitable access to language and is set up for successful development of the deep reading brain so they can decide their own future.
