El Paso Group to Donate Hearing Aids to Kids with Hearing Loss
When your child has an impairment, sometimes it feels like you are the only family having to deal with such a situation. En Voz Alta is a group that was founded in order to provide advocacy for parents of kids with hearing impairments. The group even holds a summer camp for kids that teaches them social skills, as well as language, and reading skills.
The group is working on getting hearing aids to kids in need. There are a few criteria that need to be met:
- Kids have to be diagnosed by an audiologist with hearing loss.
- Paperwork from an audiologist showing the need for a child to have a hearing aid is required.
- The child cannot be covered under insurance, or can only have limited coverage.
- If the child already has equipment, that equipment can no longer be under warranty.
There are other criteria that will need to be met, but if you have a child with a hearing disability, you should definitely check out this program, and become a part of En Voz Alta. The deadline for this hearing aid program is June 1st. If you need more information, you can contact Andrea Sweetnam at 915-478-0184, or Angie Lopez at 915-276-5764.
