California’s John Tracy Clinic is a primary source of spoken-language, multi-lingual lesson-plans for families to use with babies and children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The lesson plans are in email or print form, for families to use at their pace, with the option of attending the clinic’s summer school.
JTC offers three types of parent distance-education courses for families with children aged 0 to 5 years old. All three online courses are free to families.
From January to April 2014, the clinic has a fee-based parent webinar series about hearing issues. Enrolment is on a group or a per-family basis (below).
These online family courses for deaf infants to learn to listen and speak are recommended as the basis for auditory-verbal curricula taught worldwide.
