Newly Diagnosed Weekends
Twice a year, Chime hosts information weekends for families with children who are newly diagnosed with hearing loss.
Over the weekend, you’ll benefit from information sessions and workshops about your child’s diagnosis of hearing loss. Our family support team, HSE audiologists, Visiting Teachers, and others, are on hand to provide you with one-on-one consultations and to talk more about your child’s hearing loss.
We spotlight any concerns you might have and provide you with the advice and support you need. Our guest speakers deliver presentations on cochlear implants, hearing aid maintenance and assistive technologies for pre-school and school children, in the home and in the classroom.
There are plenty of activities to keep your child entertained. We have professional childminders and a crèche so you can focus on learning about hearing loss, and your child can focus on playtime and making new friends.
Our next Newly Diagnosed Weekend takes place 1st-3rd March 2019. Click here to find out more information.
Have you watched our C.O.N.N.E.C.T. series? CONNECT is an acronym for Communication, Observation, Network of Professionals, New Information, Environmental Awareness, Conversation and Top Tips. We filmed this series to give you some advice in helping your child reach their full potential. You'll find it under here, under Familly Resources.
