Here are some links to other websites and opportunities that may be of interest to our members:
Iowa School for the Deaf (ISD) – Join ISD Sports
National CMV Foundation seeks to help prevent congenital CMV infection, which is linked to hearing loss and disability in 10% of newborns whose mothers tested positive for recurring CMV.
The Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center of Gallaudet University provides links to online learning modules for educators as well as “Info-to-Go” resources for anyone interested in supporting students who are D/HH. It is a compendium of information on the history and approaches of deaf education over the last 200 years, legislation outlining the rights of those who are D/HH, and resources for families advocating for kiddos who are D/HH.
The UNL Barkley Speech Language and Hearing Clinic has provided our families who live in the central and western part of the state another option for audiological testing at various ESUs in that area. Sara Peterson is a Deaf Educator who will be working with you; she is great with babies and parents. The information is immediately sent into UNL who processes the information. This is a great opportunity which targets birth-to-three year olds who are referred by way of the newborn hearing screen test. See the flier for more details.
