Child Hearingmilestones

Whether your child was born with hearing loss or acquired hearing loss later in life, they need care and support. As a parent, you have important questions like:

• What can I do to help my child feel confident and empowered?

• How can I make sure that teachers understand my child’s needs?

• What does the latest hearing loss research actually mean, in plain English?

• How can I connect with other families who have a child with hearing loss?

• Where can I find nearby camps, events, daycares and activities for my child?

HEARING MILESTONES was created to help answer questions like these in one simple, easy-to-use platform. In a multi-state survey, parents resoundingly replied that they need tools and resources that fit into their busy, on-the-go lives. Families are seeking more information, more help, more understanding, and more stories of trial and triumph. Our mission is to provide parents with resources so their children can gain self-confidence, be their own best advocates, and harness their inner hero. We bring together advocacy, hearing loss, and assistive technology in a way that is fun!

Our Platform

Hearing Milestones is a multi-faceted platform that will grow in the years to come to provide more tools and resources for parents.

Giving Back

From the start, Hearing Milestones has seen the need to contribute to our community of children with hearing loss. First and foremost, we are here to empower this generation of children. Our platform provides the tools for empowerment because we know that hearing loss may be a part of them, but it does not define who they are or who they will become. We believe it is important for children to know that everyone has their own unique struggle, and even though we may not have control over what our struggles are, we do have control over how we rise above it. We are also here to support this community’s access to health, education, and hearing in in whatever way we can.
