After years of working with families, two experts share the areas for consideration by families related to early accessible language for deaf and hard of hearing babies. This 30-minute video presents information for families interested in learning more about supporting their deaf or hard of hearing child's language and communication development as early as possible. It addresses the following three areas:
- What We Know About Language Access for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children
- What We Know About Language Access for All Children
- Recommended Opportunities to Support Your Child's Language Acquisition
We also encourage families to view two other Clerc Center webcasts--Maximizing Language Acquisition in ASL and Spoken English and Language Learning Through the Eye and Ear--to help support concepts that are covered in the Early Accessible Language webcast.
