My Turn To Learn

Parents want current, unbiased information when facing the challenges of raising an infant or young child identified with hearing loss/deafness. This resource guides families to consider evidence and choose strategies that promote communication and healthy interactions with their baby.  Written by BCFHRC staff, this handbook is a must-have for every family with a baby who is deaf or hard-of-hearing.  It is currently available in Chinese (both Simplified & Traditional Chinese), Farsi/Persian, Korean and Punjabi. Professionals can order their copy HERE.
