From education to equipment support to social interactions our goal is for deaf/hard of hearing children and young adults to be on par with their hearing peers.
Thank You, Rock the Town Sponsors, for making the event a great success!
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.
Please join us for Bowling with Friends!
We are excited to announce that this year we will be hosting TWO bowling events!
- Saturday May 18th. 2:30 – 4:30 pm – at Timber Lanes in Chicago
This FREE family event is presented by the FHSR Associate to encourage community and shared experiences among families who have children with hearing loss. One of FHSR goals is to provide opportunities to support children and their families and caregivers.
We always max out attendance at this event, so register right now!
There will be plenty of bowling, laughing and hanging out – with new and old friends!
1-3-6 AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
NEXT STEPS AFTER A FAILED NEWBORN HEARING SCREENING
One key test that happens the day after your baby is born in Illinois is the Newborn Hearing Screening.
If your baby does not pass, it could mean your baby has some level of hearing loss. A second follow up screening is crucial to determine if your baby has hearing loss.
IN THE NEWS
FHSR is thrilled to be featured on Missions Matters to discuss hearing loss in newborns and how FHSR is bringing awareness through our 1-3-6 Campaign. One of our goals is to normalize parents reporting weight, height, and hearing as part of a natural response to how the baby is doing.
BE A PART OF IT ALL.
Give the gift of hearing.
Every contribution to FHSR helps improve the lives of deaf and hard of hearing children.
We hope you will consider making a gift to support these children. Thank you!
