We founded Children's Voice of North Texas in 2013 to help parents just like us—parents who want their child who is hearing impaired to communicate through listening and speaking. When our daughter was born with severe-to-profound hearing loss, we were unsure what to do and spent the first six weeks trying to find out why she failed her newborn hearing screening and what it meant. When we were told that our newborn was deaf (and that it wasn't just fluid causing a temporary hearing loss), our minds raced—wondering what to do, where to go and who to trust with the decisions that lay before us as parents and for our child’s future.
After learning about different options and technologies, we chose the auditory-verbal path for speech and language so our child will be able to communicate with everyone. Our daughter was initially fitted with hearing aids when she was four months old, had cochlear implant surgery at one-year of age and is currently in fourth grade in a mainstream classroom.
We have had help from many people, but finding them was not easy. We felt lucky to stumble upon great resources and, through Children's Voice of North Texas, we want to make it easier for other parents to find such resources easily and to provide financial assistance for hearing technologies and speech therapy/hearing schools for those who cannot afford them on their own.
