Summer is almost over! If you have children going back to school, make sure as you are getting your last few days of rays, that you consider having their hearing checked. Hearing loss can make it difficult for your children to feel confident in returning to the classroom. ‘Earq.com’ has put together a list of great things you can do to help prepare your child with hearing loss for the new school year. Some of the steps you can take include:
First, you can consider setting up and Individualized Education Plan. This is a legally binding plan you can set up with your child and their school. It is designed to help the school best accommodate the needs of your child.
Next, make sure to get whatever tools your child needs for accessibility. Hearing aids, cochlear implants, or other devices may be necessary to help them perform at their best in school.
Also don’t forget to meet with a hearing care provider. Checking in and making sure everything is set to go is the perfect way to make sure the first day of school starts off on the right foot.
With summer coming to a close there isn’t a better time to make sure your child is prepared to go back to school. While you are at it, consider getting a hearing test yourself. Regular hearing tests are vital in making sure you aren’t missing a beat.
