Beginnings for Parents of Hearing Impaired Children, Inc.
November 10, 2010
When we found out our son was Deaf it was overwhelming news. Beginnings did an amazing job laying out all of the options that we as a hearing family had for helping our son to have language. They introduced the idea that language of any kind promotes learning language in the future, so that no matter what our long term decision was it was important to start something right away. They informed me of the options for ASL & Cued Speech & also the hearing options. Because I was well informed about all the options, my son started on ASL right away & eventually recieved cochlear implants to begin his journey in listening. Beginnings was there as a resource the whole way through, from getting me in touch with an ASL teacher to helping me more fully understand what the cochlear implant does & what the process looks like! They were amazing
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Because we were strongly encouraged to start our son on language as soon as we knew he was Deaf, he is now very strong in not just spoken language but also reading & writing.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
