As parents, we want our children to be able to have the world, and then some. Now that I have two children in school, I want to know my children are receiving the best education they can.
After the twins NICU stay, we received a letter in the mail stating some of the meds they received while hospitalized could be a potential cause of hearing loss. The fear seeing those words is something no parent wants to see. Luckily, we do not believe they have any hearing loss from that time but, it there was, I’d want the best for them to ensure they could succeed.
Hear the World Foundation
wants to help children have an equal opportunity when it comes to their education and quality of life. Find out more about how you can help by joining us for a #HearTheWorld Twitter Party!
#HearTheWorld Twitter Party
: Our sense of hearing can play a critical role in education, particularly when we are young. Real and meaningful education happens when kids are truly engaged, and that engagement is only possible when kids can hear and understand the teacher. I’m working with The Motherhood to share insights about the potential impact of hearing loss on children’s education, and how to help these kids engage at school, during this Twitter party with the Hear the World Foundation.
When: Wednesday, Feb. 26, at noon ET (11a CT / 9a PT)
Where: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #HearTheWorld hashtag to track the conversation. You can see more details and RSVP using the Twtvite:http://twtvite.com/heartheworld3
