Beginnings for Parents of Hearing Impaired Children, Inc.
December 13, 2010

Working as an itinerant teacher of deaf children learning to listen and speak in the public schools, I saw numerous families struggle to be advocates for their children. I saw parents struggle with policy and law. The parent advocates at Beginnings were always prepared to play a big role in educating those parents and giving them the tools they need to provide the best education possible for their children. The Beginnings website is also an amazing educational resource available for families and professionals about the topic of hearing loss and all communication options.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

expand it to more states.
