Tip #2: Read to your child every day. Each time you read to your child, you are helping his/her brain to develop language fluency.

Parent Support

IMG_0149The parent support group offers DePaul parents and other family members the opportunity talk about the unique challenges and concerns of raising a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Often times, just knowing that other parents face similar situations, hopes and fears can bring comfort and support.

During the school year, the Parent Support Group will meet from 10:00-11:00 am on the third Wednesday of the month in DePaul’s library. Please join us to share your experiences and concerns about raising a child with hearing loss with other families.

Karen Schrecengost, DePaul’s School Psychologist, will facilitate the meetings and offer her support and expertise as needed. Free babysitting is also provided.

For more information or to register, please contact Mimi Loughead at 412.924.1012 or depaulschool@depaulhearingandspeech.org!

Tip #3: Kids do not learn language from watching TV; they learn by interacting with people.
