Something to Know

Did you know?  Babies begin to develop speech and language from the time they are born
Did you know? ..... Hearing loss can affect a child’s ability to develop communication, language, and social skills
Did you know? .....The earlier children with hearing loss start getting services, the more likely they are to reach their full potential

Something you should know.....
Babies should have a hearing screening before they are a month old. If your child has a hearing loss, it is important to consider the use of hearing devices and/or other communication options by age 6 months. That's because children start learning speech and language long before they talk.

Did you know? .....  if your child is found to have a hearing loss
Hearing aids for children cost between $1,000 and $4,000 per ear and different kinds of aids can cost more or less than others

Something you should know....
Warranties are good but don't cover everything.  But I bet you knew that!

'Jewelry for a Voice' is a great fundraiser and fun 'get-together' for a cause.  The monies raised that evening go to a fund to help families that cannot afford to purchase and/or repair hearing aids not covered under warranties or insurances.  Children with a hearing loss must have communication available to them - why not help if possible.  Enjoy an evening out and learn a little bit more about a special group of children.  You don't have to be a sponsor - you can purchase a ticket and join us for some fun AND a little information.  This is my personal invitation to this number and to purchase your ticket 915-521-7229 ext.2989.
