With your encouragement and support, together we have continued supporting families and professionals to help children with hearing loss learn to listen and talk by sharing their stories, inviting them to connect with others like them in our online communities, and by building LSL knowledge and capacity with our digital resources and in our free online learning experiences.
Just like us, your child will celebrate some incredible milestones and have many learning opportunities before they turn four.
By the time your child turns four, they’re able to hear more than 40 million words. Research tells us that children who hear at least 40 million words or more in the first four years of life develop early conversational skills, learn to read on time, do better in school, and have more communication opportunities in the future.
While the 40 million word count seems lofty, we’re giving you easy-to-use tips and resources to help you reach this goal and make sure your child’s first four years are just as rewarding as ours have been!
