DYK? More than 90 percent of children with hearing loss or deafness are born to hearing parents, making spoken language a vital tool for communication.
On a weekend in October 2016, we hosted our first annual free Hear the Music Kids Camp with the Charley Foundation in Scottsville, Kentucky. We invited 32 children with hearing loss and their families to enjoy horseback riding, boating, swimming, archery, songwriting and more on 140 acres at the Center for Courageous Kids! with breakout sessions for parents to gain valuable perspective regarding:
- school systems & barriers to classroom learning;
- music appreciation;
- athletic success strategies;
- youth empowerment/advocacy.
Mark your calendars for June 3-7 2017, Hearing Loss/Speech Disorders & Siblings Camp! at Center for Courageous Kids.
