Deaf* Early Start Resources

On this website you will find family and child-centered holistic resources for supporting families with Deaf* babies and toddlers. These resources focus on providing families with a positive and research-based perspective on having a Deaf child. In this current environment of medicalizing Deaf babies, family members need Early Start teachers that can help them focus on bonding with their child and embracing all the ways their child is developing like any other child.

*The term Deaf is an inclusive term that refers to children with varying hearing levels as well as children with hearing assistive technology.
