Help for Parents of Children With Hearing Loss

Support for Parents of Children With Hearing Loss continued...

Here are a few things you can do to help your child -- and yourself:

Educate yourself. Web sites, as well as government and nonprofit groups, can help you keep up with the latest developments and research.

Communicate. Seek out support groups and online chat communities for parents of children with hearing loss. These groups can provide information and a sense of community.

Stay in touch with your child. Some children with hearing loss feel socially isolated. But early treatment and the use of hearing aids can reduce the chances of social isolation.

Take care of yourself and your other relationships. Getting help for children with hearing loss can take all of your time. But don't neglect your own well-being or other relationships. Make time for your spouse or partner, stay in touch with friends, and do things you enjoy.
