Early Intervention: Improvement in Action
The Importance of Quality Improvement in Early Intervention (01:47)
An Interview with Chris Kometer (text version)
"Our early interventionist taught us how to read an audiogram, how to care for hearing aids, how to develop her hearing ability, how to find opportunities to learn language in her everyday routine, and how to effectively use English with our daughter. Our Deaf Mentor took away our fear of what our daughter's life might be like, guided us into the Deaf world, helped us understand Deaf culture, taught us to effectively use American Sign Language, and gave us insight into our daughter's life that helped us love appreciate and accept her. We believe that we are now equipped to help our daughter have the best of both the Deaf world and the Hearing world. We would have been cheated if we hadn't had the benefits of both of these wonderful people in our lives."
