HELP DEAF KIDS TALK, INC.
Help Deaf Kids Talk, Inc believes independence achieved through verbal communication should be for all children. To that end we support early identification and intervention for hearing loss. The mission of "Help Deaf Kids Talk" is to provide financial assistance to deaf or severely hard of hearing infants or young children for the necessary therapy to enable the development of hearing, listening and understanding as a pre-requisite to talking.
Most deaf and hard of hearing children (90%) are born to hearing parents. Virtually all of them desire their child to become productive and independent members of society. But the reality is without verbal communication their best hopes and dreams are restricted and extremely limited. Advancements in cochlear implantation and best fit hearing instruments have opened up the world of sound and opportunity to these children.
Technology by itself, however, is not enough without the necessary therapy to enable these children to develop hearing, listening and understanding as a pre-requisite to talking. "Help Deaf Kids Talk" provides financial assistance for the required therapy. The dividends are most rewarding on many different levels. With proper intervention these children develop verbal communication, attend regular classrooms and go on to lead active and productive lives.
