The River School’s Parent-Infant Program is a free resource for families with children diagnosed with hearing loss ages birth to three. We embrace all communication options and strive to discuss topics that interest families. Parents and their infants and toddlers meet each week at The River School for an hour. Parents learn about issues relating to hearing loss and share experiences with other families in similar situations, while the children engage in fun, language-stimulating activities.

The Parent-Infant Program provides:

  • Family networking and mentoring
  • Activities to stimulate language development
  • Sensory, language, motor, and social activities
  • Information on listening technology (cochlear implants, hearing aids, etc.), communication choices, and community resources

The program is facilitated by a multi-disciplinary team with training in speech-language pathology, early childhood education and development, deaf education, audiology and psychology.
