Review for Spokane Hearing Oral Program of Excellence (HOPE), Spokane, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our daughter failed her new born hearing screening and began using bilateral hearing aids when she was 6 weeks old. As her parents we were concerned that she would never hear "normally", never hear common sounds, and not speak as well as her peers. She started at HOPE School just before her first birthday. She transitioned from Toddler Group into the Preschool program as she was turning 2. HOPE School was wonderful! She was taught to listen and speak to communicate. By the time she was 4, she was the classroom speech model! She mainstreamed into the public school system for Kindergarten. She is now finishing up First Grade and has not needed any speech therapies, or any other special courses. We are so thankful to HOPE School for all they have given her, and to our family. We are now confident that she does hear "normally" and communicate with others. HOPE School is an extended family. We still have times to visit with the other families through holiday events and FISH Meetings. And whenever We hear of a family going through similar situations, we always share our wonderful experiences at HOPE School with them.
