Thread: Storybook / Picture book for hearing impaired children

    Cool Storybook / Picture book for hard of hearing children

    Hello everyone. I have browsed these forums often, but this is my first post.

    After searching for picture books for dhh children, I found very few options, so I decided to write my own. I have worn hearing aids since kindergarten, so I was able to draw from my own experiences as I created the story.

    Yes, I am plugging my story, but ultimately I want hard of hearing children to have a story that they can relate to, something that I did not have growing up. You can check out my story HERE

    Hi Jason

    That's a really cute title page you have. I think you are onto something great for young folks understand some issues of hearing loss. Without my doing any real research into age related reading material, have you looked into Gallaudet. edu bookstore if you haven't yet? Another message board for hearing loss is a small one yet you can post your queries specifically to parents and professionals at hearinglikeme.com. Another resource is harriscomm.com.

    Good luck with your project.
