Music To My Ears

Can A Hearing Impaired Child Become a Musician?

Did you know that deaf children, like this one, can not only learn to listen and talk, they can learn to play musical instruments? And learning music has important benefits, even beyond imbuing a love for this form of art. Researchers have found that learning music may have unexpected benefits – like improved reading ability.



Thank you for your interest in The Listen Foundation.  We are a non-profit dedicated to helping Colorado families with children who are deaf or hearing impaired reach their full potential.  We hope you find our site interesting and informative.

The Principles of Auditory-Verbal Practice

1. Working toward the earliest possible identification of hearing loss in infants and young children, ideally in the newborn nursery.  Conducting an aggressive program of audiologic management.

2. Seeking the best available sources of medical treatment and technological amplification of sound for the child who is deaf or hard of hearing as early as possible.

3. Helping the child understand the meaning of any sounds heard, including spoken language, and teaching the child's parents how to make sound meaningful to the child all day long.
