Growing Up with Hearing Loss is an interactive platform to help children and young adults with hearing loss and their families successfully manage key transitions and use them as opportunities to learn, grow, and discover new things about themselves and the world.
For children and young adults with hearing loss, transitions present additional opportunities and challenges. By reflecting on where they are now and where they are going next, they can begin to think about their short and long-term goals and learn to plan the steps they will take to get there.
For hearing care professionals, Growing Up with Hearing Loss offers an effective way to help children and young adults reflect on how they are doing and where they are headed. You can use this information to structure conversations in the appointment and explore effective next steps and strategies with them.
Activities up to age 9 are written for parents to complete with their children. Activities for ages 9 and up are intended for young adults to complete on their own.
