Topic: Does Your Child Have Selective Hearing or Possible Hearing Loss?
The new school year has begun! Do you have a difficult time communicating with your child: getting him/her up for school, doing chores, completing homework, etc? Do you joke and say “Oh he/she has selective hearing!?” Well, hearing loss, whether mild or severe, goes undetected and can have a negative effect on your child’s academic performance as well as functioning at home and in the community. Come join us for an informal evening of learning how we hear and what factors into hearing loss, causes, and strategies when collaborating with your school district.
