THE STORY:

Revolutionary advances in hearing technologies and Early Intervention therapies have permanently altered the trajectory of the lives of children with any degree of hearing loss. Hearing loss can now be detected at birth and, when all the right interventions are made early in life, even profoundly deaf children have the potential to acquire listening, learning, and speaking skills on par with their hearing peers. There still is no cure for deafness, but with comprehensive intervention and therapies early in life and reasonable supports thereafter, they can learn to communicate entirely by listening and speaking, sing, play musical instruments, and attend their neighborhood schools right alongside their hearing peers.

While achieving these outcomes is possible, it isn’t easy and requires specialized technology and services such as those provided by Clarke as well as a lot of hard work on the part of the family and child. And, too few families have access to these things during the critically important first three years of their children's lives. Your donation to Clarke can change this. Please give as generously as you can.
