The services that The Decibels Foundation helps fund are invaluable to the children and families that receive them. This foundation is unique and provides deaf children critical early childhood services that they may otherwise not have access to.
The Decibels Foundation is an invaluable resource for Boston/ metro west families by providing best in class support services for children with hearing loss and their families. By funding and supporting these critical programs the Decibels Foundation is able to ensure that kids and families are provided with a solid foundation in which to build from.
As a board member, I am always astounded by the work being done by Decibels. With funds being cut everywhere it is wonderful to see that children with hearing loss and their families can still receive early intervention and support. It does a world of good and helps immensely. Without Decibels and other such foundations the children would have a much more difficult time adjusting to the world. Keep up the good work.
The Decibels Foundation is a group of parents, professionals and interested people who tirelessly raise money to support programs for deaf and hearing impaired young children and their families. They are also concerned with educating professionals, caregivers and students who work with and support these children and their famillies. Money raised funds specialized early intervention, parent support groups, graduate student scholarship, specialized equipment, resource information, and more.
Decibels is an organization that provides excellent support for children with hearing loss and their families. In addition to supporting providers who are involved in direct service provision, they support consultative and educational services for other programs and schools, and a scholarship program for speech and language pathology graduate students interested in working with deaf and hard of hearing children. Over time their program for infants and children aged birth to three with hearing loss has become one of the Early Intervention programs against which others are measured. I have had the opportunity to work closely with many of the children and families, as well as other involved in the program, and I can vouch for their total dedication to these children with the goal of giving them the fundamentals to become successful communicators, allowing them to have access to academic achievement and normal social development.
Decibels is a wonderful organization that helps kids get off the ground towards reaching their potential despite hearing loss. With all their support- and alliance with Boston Children's Hospital they really help these kids get the educational start and healthcare they deserve to become independent learners.
Decibels is focused on helping children with hearing loss and their families. The programs and services help children with hearing loss to achieve outstanding results. My daughter's school was educated by the Decibels consultant as to which accomodations she would need in the classroom. She is comfortable in her classroom setting and has excelled in her education achievements in large part to the training and services provided by this organization.
Thank you for your kind words! We're so glad to hear how well your daughter is doing! -The Decibels Foundation
