How we can help
Advice and support
Have you just found out that your baby or child has hearing loss? Most deaf children are born to hearing parents who have no previous experience of deafness so far, for some families, when they’re told their child has a hearing loss, the news can come as great shock. We are here for you.
Earsay can help your child and family in a number of different ways. From advice and training through to structured and inspiring events to unite the hearing and hearing impaired. We also raise funds to be able to provide financial support for equipment and treatment.
The Earsay community
A huge part of Earsay is bringing families with hearing impaired children together. This is important not just for the children’s development but also for the parents to learn and share experience. We hold a number of both informative and fun events each year.
