Hearing words over and over is very important for children with hearing loss. The goal is that after hearing a word many times in many different activities, they will start to use it on their own.
With so many new tech gadgets coming out today, many times the most functional and beneficial ones get lost in the mix. Video remote interpreting software offers a whole new world of accessibility to deaf and hard of hearing individuals, but it is not a new phone, so you won’t hear about it on most tech and news websites.
All languages are tools that can be used to form connections, including American Sign Language. The Silent Raiders club at Texas Tech teaches and practices ASL to form connections between students and the deaf community.
Jane R. Madell, a pediatric audiology consultant and speech-language pathologist in Brooklyn, N.Y., wants every parent with a child who is born hearing-impaired to know that it is now possible for nearly all children with severe hearing loss to learn to listen and speak as if their hearing were completely normal.
Self-talk and parallel-talk are two strategies that help expose your child to spoken language. These strategies require no response from your child. All they have to do is listen!
