Are you excited for summer? Us too! The FRIEND Academy recently hosted a training for family members sharing tips on how to help your family make the most of it with your deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) child. This is such an important topic because what may be fun for other children can be stressful for your child. In case you missed the training, we will outline the highlights on what to expect and how to prepare for any challenges that may arise.
As you are getting ready for summer, you may have some of the following top summer activities planned. Water sports, biking, campfires/camping, nature activities, picnics, community celebrations (hello, 4th of July!), amusement parks and family vacation/travel, anyone?
These things are all insanely fun for most people. However, they can be incredibly stressful for children with hearing loss.
