Parent-Infant Program Purpose:
- The educational trajectory for children who are deaf or hard of hearing has improved
dramatically with the adoption of early detection
programs and the advent of cochlear implants and other assistive technology. However,
new laws and technology are not enough.
Families of young children must be able to access high quality services provided by
knowledgeable and skilled professionals. They also
need information to make sound decisions regarding the use of available technology.
- The aim of this program is to provide parents with information and tools to help insure that children in this region who are deaf or hard of hearing and learning to listen and talk will be able to reach their highest potential. Parents and their infant children meet with students and Dr. Lori Pakulski to learn to foster their children's auditory and language development.
