The Parent-Infant Program at Sunshine Cottage provides parent-focused, child-driven intervention for families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing birth to three years. Our mission is to guide and coach parents to assume the role as the primary language facilitators in order to fire and wire their child’s brain for listening. Our program is dedicated to counsel parents about hearing loss, hearing technology and advocacy. Parents learn to implement strategies to develop auditory skills that support spoken language. We endorse the development of fluent listening and spoken language as the foundation for literacy and future academic success.
