The Hear On suite of learning videos was created for families of children identified with permanent hearing loss. They were each created with a clear parent need for information in mind. They are roughly ordered as we think parents may best make use of them. But of course each family has their own particular journey. The videos start with the first ABR appointment and move on from there. Watch them in order, or jump around as you like. Invite others important to your child’s care to come watch as well. Welcome. Please come back often to see if we have posted something new.
Each video was crafted and revised based on the input and feedback of established professionals in the field of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology. We are also hoping to collect feedback from parents who can help us by pointing the way to new videos and how to revise our current videos to better meet their needs. Let us know what you think.
