"Hearing" with your eyes

We found a great post by Jane Madell at HHTM on the importance of checking vision for children with hearing loss. We sometimes get focused so much on hearing, that we can forget about how important our vision is in helping us "hear" what people say.

"Vision matters – even if a child is learning primarily through an auditory path. It is important to be sure we know how a child with hearing loss sees. We need to monitor hearing as well as all other developmental issues so we can be sure children are the best they can be."
