If I were a parent and I had just learned that my child was deaf, the first thing I would do is research their condition and learn as much as I could about it. Are there treatments available? Should I look into a cochlear implant or hearing aids? Next, I would figure out how I was going to communicate with my child. Should I learn ASL? How would I teach it to my child? Also what is the best educational option? Would it going to a school for the deaf or special education in a mainstream school be better? I would want to know all of my options so that my child could have the best life possible.
