Childrens Blocks

Parent Tip Sheets provide suggestions for fun, everyday activities to enhance baby’s cognitive, social, emotional, language, pre-literacy, and literacy development.

For most parents, language development is our biggest worry about our deaf or hard of hearing child. How will our child communicate ideas back and forth, or express and understand feelings? Language development also supports thinking and problem-solving, and developing and maintaining relationships. Learning to understand, use and enjoy language is the critical first step in literacy, and the basis for learning to read and write.
