When your child is diagnosed with hearing loss, it can be a stressful time when you are inundated with new information. As parents, relatives and professionals who work with deaf and hard of hearing children, our Board is uniquely aware of the challenges families face when a child has been identified with hearing loss. For over 60 years, we have been a foundation dedicated to providing support to both the child and the family through our wrap around services.

“For far too long, parents have been excluded from being full partners in developing their children’s special education program because Chicago Public Schools was not providing proper interpreters or translated documents,” said Zena Naiditch, President & CEO of Equip for Equality, a non-profit group designated as the federally mandated state Protection & Advocacy agency for Illinois and counsel representing the plaintiffs. “The settlement agreements will ensure that parents can be engaged in and advocate for their children’s education and services regardless of their primary language.”
