Bringing together experts in their field, top researchers and educators, the FHSR Speaker Series works to share up to the minute information on aspects of a deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) child’s life, such as education opportunities, knowledge about your child’s hearing loss, and key programming to support both the child and the family. This free event has focused on topics ranging from music and hearing loss, early intervention and childhood, insight from top implant surgeons, how to choose the right preschool and what an Individual Education Plan (IEP) should include. We want our families to be empowered with knowledge so they can be the best advocates for their child.
