If your child is diagnosed with hearing loss, we will provide you with detailed and comprehensive information explaining the options you have for optimizing your child’s communication, language, and literacy abilities. If you choose for your child to communicate through listening and spoken language, your pediatric audiologist will recommend hearing technology that will maximize your child’s hearing abilities, and your pediatric audiologist and Listening and Spoken Language Specialist will also create a plan to provide the therapies and services your child will need to reach his or her full potential. Hearts for Hearing funding is available to ensure that the recommended services are available to all children, even when their families’ financial resources are limited.
Hearts for Hearing was founded in 2003 with a mission of providing hearing technology and speech therapy services at no out-of-pocket costs to families with children who were born deaf. 20 years later, we are still teaching babies and children born deaf to listen and talk. Our services have expanded to include adult hearing care with offices in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Shawnee. Our team of professionals has grown from our original three people to 117 now. Hearts for Hearing continues to provide the first set of hearing technology and therapy to children at no out-of-pocket costs to families, and now includes Newborn Hearing Screen services, major research initiatives, Eyes Open Ears On programming, and its own 3D ear mold lab.
