Mother with young girl with cochlear implant

This resource is designed for children of 12 to 24 months of age, who receive their cochlear implant around 12 months of age. The Sound Foundation for Babies series consists of 40 self-contained sets of goals in the areas of audition, receptive language, expressive language and speech as well as a song and a story book.

This comprehensive resource provides parents, with children that have a hearing loss, guidance in developing their child’s spoken language through listening.

The activities included in this habilitation series are designed to fit easily into everyday life as well as provide the knowledge and understanding of the theory behind the goals identified each week.
