“Creating Sound Beginnings for DC Area Children!”

sb
via Sound Beginnings

“All children deserve a Sound Beginning. According to the CDC 1.6% of all students are diagnosed with hearing loss. Imagine life not being able to hear your teachers or classmates, music or car horns, or your mother say “I love you.”

There are nearly 50,000 students in the public school system in Washington DC. Do you want to make a difference for those who are deaf or hard of hearing? Ideas, connections, strategies and help is needed to develop:

free hearing clinics to diagnose and help kids hear,
a hearing aid recycling program for kids and parents in need,
and classroom sound amplification systems for kids to learn.
Bring a friend and join us for a come and see strategy meeting at the MLK Library, 901 G Street NW, at 6:00 pm on Wednesday, September 7th.

For questions regarding Sound Beginnings contact Quota International at [email protected] or call 202-331-9694.”

  • People- if you’re thinking about going or supporting this event, don’t. Here’s why: the only deaf university (and k-12) in the world specifically for deaf people with far more resources than this organization is right here in Washington, DC. Parents and children, if you’re reading this, Gallaudet University, (gallaudet.edu) would be a much better resource for you. One such reason is the NSF and NIH lab on campus- the Brain Learning and Language Laboratory. It’s already free to attend K-12 there, along with all of the resources they offer such as their own audiology clinics and labs.

    These kinds of organizations are typically not acting in the best interest of the family nor the child. Keep this in mind.

    Sincerely,

    A deaf person who’s been there and done that
