Episode 18 Show Notes

In January, 2019 a team of our staff went to Israel to collaborate with professionals at a school for children with hearing loss in Tel Aviv. Here is some information on the program: http://www.beitmicha.org.il/en/home/. In July, 2019 the Beit Micha Team came to the United States to visit Child’s Voice.  One of the activities the Beit Micha Team participated in was the observation of a recording of All Ears at Child’s Voice: A Hearing Loss Podcast. This episode is a “Parent Panel” of 4 mothers of children with hearing loss who attend Child’s Voice programs. Wendy talked to these “Superwomen” about a variety of topics including:

Their experiences with early identification and implantation
Juggling multiple therapies
Caring for children with needs in addition to their hearing loss
Early sign language exposure
Cultural competence
Making decisions about using a family’s native language
The role their therapists have played in their journey’s
How they try to take care of their children by practicing self-care
And so much more!
