We are excited to share with you our Parent Toolkit, a resource for parents that has been several years in the making! This valuable resource toolkit covers:
- Questions that come up over and over again on the Alberta Hands & Voices Facebook page. Examples: Any advice for swimming lessons? My child is going into kindergarten – what do I need to know? How do I explain her hearing loss to her new teacher?
- Topics that are not covered well elsewhere, or are not readily available. Examples: Listening fatigue. Speechreading instruction for children. Incidental learning. Tinnitus in children. Unilateral hearing loss. And many more!
- Topics that provide a foundation for further knowledge. Example: Types of hearing loss. Coping with emotions after hearing loss is diagnosed.
- Topics that Parent Guides will need to know about. Examples: Causes of hearing loss. Auditory Neuropathy Spectrum Disorder (ANSD).
