If you’ve ever asked the question ‘How in the world do you test a baby’s hearing?’, we have a must-watch video for you! Read about our recent Facebook Live “Ask Me Anything” with Dr. Jace Wolfe, prominent researcher in pediatric audiology and Director of Audiology and Research at Hearts for Hearing, and watch the video recap!

While we know there are incredible opportunities available for children who are deaf or hard or hearing to listen, talk, and achieve grade-level reading, there first has to be a foundation of hearing tests, technology-fittings, and collaborative LSL professional partnerships.

We recently had the opportunity to do a one-on-one interview with Dr. Jace Wolfe, a prominent researcher in pediatric audiology and the Director of Audiology and Research at Hearts for Hearing, where we discussed everything from how to test a baby’s hearing and accessing the brain with sound, to what’s possible today for babies who are born deaf or hard of hearing.

For families and professionals helping children with hearing loss learn to listen and talk, this interview is a must-watch resource for inspiration! Watch the full interview below.
