We’re so proud of our Sound Start kids, their families, our Program Director and Teacher, all the many volunteers for making this past year a fantastic one! We had two graduates this year, Katherine and Jordyn, who will now go to “BIG school”, mainstreamed into a typical kindergarten classroom. We can’t wait to welcome back our remaining students this August, with new students joining them!
Sound Start is our region’s only early intervention, auditory/verbal program for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Each of our kids have wither dual cochlear implants or hearing aids and Sound Start teaches them to use that technology to it’s fullest, learning to listen and speak, promoting the development of their auditory brain, developing a listening attitude which will help them be successful in their mainstreamed school educations and beyond!
