Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf Continue Reading ....

In 1979, the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf began the Parent Infant Program (PIP). This innovative program was the first of its kind with teachers of the deaf going into the homes of families who had a child with a hearing loss. Most often the children were diagnosed with a hearing lost around two years of age. Thirty years later, their teachers have worked with over 400 families, but now the children are diagnosed with hearing loss around two months old. The program is called Choices for Children (CFC) and the workforce has expanded to serve families from across Pennsylvania. Their experienced, certified teachers have been the cornerstone of this primarily home-based program, still conducting visits to the home or daycare on a regular basis. The Choices for Children staff provides comprehensive and objective information, advocacy, and training in language, audition and speech for deaf infants, toddlers and their families.
