About Hearts for Hearing

 

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn to listen and talk.

Hearts for Hearing is a  progressive and award-winning team of experienced hearing health professionals that includes pediatric audiologists and speech-language pathologists, five of whom are Listening and Spoken Language Specialists certified as Auditory-Verbal Therapists.

 

We believe

families should be provided information regarding all options for communicating with their child.  If listening and spoken language is chosen by a family, we believe that typical listening and spoken language outcomes should be expected for babies who are diagnosed shortly after birth, fit with hearing aids in the first weeks of life, and enrolled in auditory-verbal therapy before three months of age.

We believe

good outcomes are the enemy of great outcomes and we will not settle for good.

We believe

the cost of hearing aids should not limit a child from access to excellent listening and spoken language outcomes. Hearts for Hearing provides the first set of hearing aids to all newly diagnosed infants and children in Oklahoma under the age of five at no cost to the family.

We believe

that adults with hearing loss deserve the opportunity to hear again. Hearts for Hearing provides comprehensive hearing healthcare ensuring the appropriate fitting of hearing aids and mapping of cochlear implants combined with auditory (re)habilitation for adults.

Hearts for Hearing creates life-changing opportunities for individuals with hearing loss to listen for a lifetime.
