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 English, Chinese (both Simplified & Traditional Chinese), Farsi/Persian, Korean and Punjabi. Professionals can order their copy HERE.
Provincial Resource Library
Housed in our Main Surrey Centre, our library holds hundreds of books, videos and research journals related to the topics of hearing loss/deafness and child development that are available for loan to parents and professionals throughout British Columbia.
Our Annual Reports provide a year-to-year snapshot of what we have accomplished and how we are growing.
