Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing

"New parents who find themselves caring for children with special needs, from developmental delays to significant disabilities, often need support and extra services to help their children develop to their fullest potential. Children and their families need support so that they can grow, develop, learn and be as ready as possible for success with friends, in school, and in life." Issues for Michigan's Children, March 2015

Michigan Chapter Alexander Graham Bell
The Michigan Chapter supports all of the initiatives of the national AG Bell organization with a focus on Michigan communities, families, education, and advocacy. We work on a variety of activities in the state of Michigan from IDEA, Summer Camps for kids with hearing loss, conferences, seminars, and awareness of issues that affect the deaf and hard of hearing. We invite you to take a look around our website and join our organization!
Sound Support - University of Michigan
Hearing loss affects a child's ability to hear speech and, in turn, delays speech and language development. For this reason, it is important to identify hearing loss in children at an early age and begin rehabilitation services as soon as possible. Sound Support was developed through a joint grant from the U-M Department of Otolaryngology, the U-M Head and Neck Surgery Division, and the State of Michigan.

Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Program
The EHDI Program is a part of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and works with hospitals and clinics to identify newborns and infants who have a hearing loss. While the hospitals do the hearing screens on the newborns, the EHDI program is working with community providers and developing information for families.
