Info for Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children
Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing children are special, in
my humble opinion. Those of us with normal hearing children know
how kids test us, how difficult they can be at times, how they
seem to communicate in mysterious ways their wants and desires.
Imagine how it'd be if you had to learn a new language just to
speak to your kids...how much more they'd depend on you to help
them understand this complicated world of ours.
Parents of Deaf and Hard of Hearing kids must continually
make an extra effort to reach their children, to be patient with
them, to make the difficult decisions about how best to educate
and raise them.
So, with deep appreciation for you parents of Deaf and Hard
of Hearing children, this page is for you. Hopefully, you'll find
some interesting links here to help you in your task. If you
should find some interesting info or links you think should be
included here, please contact .
For those of you who are not parents of Deaf or Hard of
Hearing children, take time to browse some of these sites to get
an understanding of the issues involved...
