Center For Hearing and Communication
We traveled downtown to the Center for Hearing and Communication and met with Lois Kam Heymann, a speech and language pathologist with over 30 years experience working with young children, to discuss their program. The Center offers twice-a-week, one-hour speech and language therapy sessions through Early Intervention as well as the Deaf Infant Program (DIP). Lois showed us around the Center and we were impressed by the bright green and blue walls, the children's drawings and the fun toys. We also met several of the speech pathologists who were all warm and welcoming. We felt this would be the perfect place for young Hannah to come and learn how to listen, speak and play with other children. There was also lots of laughter from the other children who seemed right at home.
