Handouts for Audiologists To Use with Parents:
Principles from Amy's published article, “Empowering parents to help their newly diagnosed child gain communication skills” (2002) The Hearing Journal, Vol 55 (11); pp. 55-59, have been adapted by Dr. Joan Martilla, of Iowa's Mississippi Bend Area Education Agency. They appear on the Agency's website as downloadable handouts to be given to parents by audiologists or clinicians in the early stages after diagnosis of hearing loss. The handouts correspond to three stages in the post-diagnosis period (at the time of diagnosis of baby's loss; time of first fitting of hearing aids; period of adjustment with hearing aid use.)
