As many of you know, my son, Mason (aka Mase) was born with bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. Through early identification, Mase was able to receive his hearing aids at 7 weeks old and recieve early intervention services shortly after! Although his hearing aids help amplify sounds, they cannot “cure” or provide “normal” hearing.
He currently attends preschool at Summit Speech School (SSS) and LOVES it! The program includes activities in which regular preschoolers participate, with additional supports from a Teacher of the Deaf, speech pathologist, and assistive hearing technology. For more info on their program, check out their team’s page or the school’s site at http://www.summitspeech.org/auditoryoral.html.
We hope you consider being Mase's HEARo by walking with us, purchasing a t-shirt or hoodie (kids sizes, too!), and/or making a donation.
If you want to join us for the walk, click the green rectangle, "Join Kristine's Team", then “Register as a New Walker.” After completing your personal info, under “Additional Information” (question #2), select Summit Speech School as the local organization. This ensures that Mason’s school receives a portion of all funds raised.
